Wedding Industry Legal Tips: Q & A

Attorney Rob Schenk

“Yo, I’m happy for you and I’m going to let you finish…but Beyonce had the best album of all time!!!”

Does Wedding DJ Contract Need to Be Notarized?

Question Originally Appearing on AVVO

“Bread. Milk. Eggs. Wedding DJ Agreement…..”

Question (from anonymous in Oregon):

“I have a dj business. to make a contract legit what do i need to do?: need to know if both parties have to sign in front of a notary?”

Response (from Attorney Rob Schenk):

Contracts do not need to be notarized to be legally enforceable.

A well written contract will set forth the material terms of service that you will perform, and the terms of price and payment. I highly recommend that you contact an attorney in order to have a contract that does the job.

With DJs, there will be issues of playlists, announcements, hours per set, etc., so I recommend you retain an entertainment or business attorney that has drafted these types of contracts before.

Moral of the Story: Attorneys help make contracts legit.
