Start Your Contract Amendment

Get started

A Contract Amendment document is used to modify the terms of an original contract. It's possible to add to, delete from, correct, or otherwise modify the original agreement with this document.


Here are some things to remember when you create a Contract Amendment:

  • Avoid making multiple amendments to your contract, especially if it amends a prior amendment. Instead, you can prepare a single amendment that restates and revokes all prior amendments.
  • To avoid potential misinterpretations of your contract, you should restate the entire provision or paragraph of your contract, rather than merely deleting, adding or changing a portion of it.
  • Once you have completed the Contract Amendment document, don't forget to date it, ensure that it is signed by the parties who signed the original contract, and provide copies to these parties, as well as to anyone else who held a copy of the original contract.
