Personal Contract Laws in Massachusetts

Contracts are thought of as detailed, technical, and filled with legal jargon. Even though that is true, contracts can be personal in nature. Contracts related to personal relationships and decisions are often between parties who know and trust each other. Although the purpose and nature of a contract may be personal, it is still a legal document and should be treated as such by all parties. The Massachusetts contract attorneys at Shapiro Law Group, PC, have the legal experience and the compassion needed to help guide you through the process of drafting, negotiating, and signing a personal contract.

Types of Personal Contracts

Some examples of a personal contract may include:

  • Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements
  • Personal loan agreements
  • Entrepreneurial contracts and employment contracts
  • Leases or land use contracts
  • Family long term care or personal care contracts

There are a wide range of agreements or life circumstances that can make a personal contract necessary. The details of a personal contract can be as unique as the situation or the parties involved.

As with any kind of contract, a personal contract needs to be clearly written. Objectives and stipulations need to be understood and defined in a manner both parties find appropriate and agreeable. Obligations of both parties for the duration of the contract should be easily understood, as should any penalties or consequences pertaining to breach of contract. Redundancy or language that is ambiguous should be avoided, as this can leave the door open to misinterpretation.
