    good luck finding that. Most on here wrote up their own contracts to be worded the way they need it for their business. Chances are, they won't post examples because they spent the time to write it.

    Micosoft Word is your best friend. while you are in the default screen, if you click on "NEW...it will ask you what you are trying to create and should direct you to the web to download templates.

    You will have to type in a search word such as " contracts" and it will narrow your search.
    Keep in mind contract a written to protect from liabilities, so keep that in mind.

    Any type of contract is usually a binding legal agreement between two party's. Before you start having clients signing contracts you need to sit down with your lawyer and draw someting up with him for two reasons, 1-to make sure what you are doing is legal and 2- to make sure your end is covered. This is why people with the real actual contracts will not share there's on lawn site because it takes a real lot of time to get all your ideas, and the necesary information on paper worded properly and legally. Any time you have to hire a lawyer it cost alot of money. Also contracts are unique, no two companys contracts should be the same, every company is differnt, there for requiring differnt things in there contracts.
