    I did a little searching on google this morning, but didnt find anything. I didnt look that much though. I thought for sure somebody on here might have something.

    I have some basic language I use for employement and it was designed for Texas. I paid a few thousand for it too. Did you check legal zoom?

    You are going to have to pay something to get one and that is what it is. You could try to hire a broker and get him to draft one for you and handle the sale but it will cost you a fee at the time of sale. He will likely over price it but then again he could get you more too.

    Really, how much in sales do you have? Do you have contracts and so forth. The value is going to dictate how much you get and how much you should spend to protect the assets with the legal end.
