Models and their clients often use Model Contracts for the purpose of laying out the scope and payment terms for work that will be delivered. Making this essential contract can help both parties to avoid potential disputes ahead. More than a generic PDF template, any Model Agreement under a Premium membership also comes with optional access to Document Defense® support from an attorney when you need it.

When using the document tools on Rocket Lawyer, any model should feel empowered to produce a free Model Contract online with relative ease. Your document will be assembled section by section, as you enter more details along the way.

Depending on whom you approach, some lawyers will not even accept requests to review your document if they didn't write it. An easier approach would be to request help from the On Call attorney network. By signing up for a Premium membership, you have the ability to request guidance from an experienced attorney or ask other questions about your Model Agreement. We are always available to answer any questions.
Attached to your Model Contract, you'll find a list of next steps to take after your document is completed. You also can engage with your contract in any of these ways: making edits, signing it by means of RocketSign®, saving it in PDF format or as a Word document, and/or printing it. Finally, the client should always receive copies of the final agreement.
The amount models get paid varies significantly depending on experience, the specific project, and the type of work. Models can make anywhere from $32,000 to $600,000+ per year.
