Making a Technical Writing Contract

  • What is a Technical Writing Contract?

    Technical writers and clients use Technical Writing Contracts as a means of documenting the details of technical writing work to be delivered. Making this essential document may lower the risk of disagreements down the road. Not just a generic template, any Technical Writing Agreement under an active Rocket Lawyer Premium membership also comes with optional access to Document Defense® to help enforce your rights.

  • Does a technical writer always need to create a Technical Writer Contract?

    Even if you are being contracted by a friend, it is always a best practice to sign a Technical Writing Contract. The benefits outlined below may help to inform your decision to use one:

    • The length of the engagement is established
    • Both parties understand the scope of their responsibilities
    • Both parties know when invoicing will happen

    Any technical writer deciding against making a Technical Writing Agreement, in many cases, should anticipate some issues, including overdue invoices and unrealistic requests.

  • What information should a contract for technical writing contain?

    To complete your Technical Writing Contract online, you will need the following:

    • The name and address of your client
    • What specific tasks you will be doing once hired
    • Whether the work will be ongoing or if it will last for a predetermined period of time
    • What fees will be charged and when

    As you might hope, Technical Writing Contracts that you build with Rocket Lawyer also contain the standard legal language with regard to the non-employer relationship, reimbursement for losses, and lastly, dispute resolution. During the process of making your agreement, you'll also be able to select its state of jurisdiction. Using the document tool, you have the ability to implement further custom alterations, as necessary.

  • On average, how much would it normally cost for me to get a writing contract template from a lawyer?

    The fees associated with finding and hiring the average law firm might total hundreds of dollars or thousands, if the matter is complex. With Rocket Lawyer, your free Technical Writing Contract will be customized with your information and for your specific needs. Simply click "Make document" above to start the process. You can always have your drafted document looked at by an attorney in our nationwide On Call network after creating it.

    If you've got any concerns or questions about how to move forward, you can connect with a lawyer. You may also wish to take a look at our entire library of contracts and other legal documents for independent contractors and service providers.

  • What happens after writing a Technical Writing Contract?

    In order to finish up any Technical Writing Contract, it will need to be signed by both you and the client. RocketSign® enables you to do this with ease. Make sure to provide a final copy of the signed contract to your client. With a Premium membership, you also can print it, download it as a Word document or PDF file, and make copies of it as needed.

  • Can my Technical Writing Contract be checked out by an attorney before I sign?

    Hiring an attorney to double-check your Technical Writing Contract may take longer than you would expect on your own. An easier approach would be to request help from the On Call network. Premium members can ask for guidance from an experienced attorney or pose other legal questions. As a business owner, you can be confident that Rocket Lawyer is by your side.
