A contract is the agreement of a promise made between two parties.
Contracts give the parties confidence in the agreement because either side can call on the law to ensure that the agreement is honored through the court system. Both written and oral contracts are legally enforceable, assuming it can be proven that the oral contract occurred, but it is always more desirable to get an agreement in writing.

Not all contracts are legally enforceable. To qualify as a contract, a set of promises must be made on a voluntary basis, made up of an offer and an acceptance, there must be consideration, and both parties must be legally able to consent to the contract. Minors, those who are mentally ill, and those who enter into a contract while under the influence of an impairing substance are usually deemed incapable of consenting to a contract.
The writing of a contract can often be confusing. You should never sign your name on any type of contract unless you know what you are agreeing to. If you are unsure about the terms of a contract, then you should have a Florida contract attorney read over it before you sign, because once you have signed a contract, you are legally obligated to it.
