General Release

A general release can help prevent future legal action in a wide variety of scenarios.

If you need a general release form, we've got a few options. Choose from the professional digital form, a free boilerplate form, or find an attorney for legal advice.

Professional Legal Forms

These digital forms, provided by Nolo, are legally valid in your state, customizable to suit your needs, professionally written, and regularly updated by expert attorneys. Use these if you need to create an enforceable contract.

Free Boilerplate Form

The form below is a very basic one, using boilerplate language, and is intended for educational purposes only. It has not been vetted by an expert, or updated. It may not be legally valid.
