One of the biggest questions most people ask is whether or not they will benefit from paying for a template for the form they need to create. If you look online you will find hundreds of sites that offer free templates to create hundreds of different forms. The problem is that many of these free templates do not contain everything that you may need to create the forms that you need. You should start out by listing exactly what you need for your form.
On the other hand, a detriment of using a pre-written template is that it may not handle more complex jobs or specific types of contract projects where there are a lot of detailed deliverables. Obviously, a basic form contract is unlikely to cover all the bases for things like international joint ventures, multi-level sales agency relationships, or insurance services. These are agreements where the costs of an attorney are justified.
