If it is held that any provision of this Amendment is invalid or unenforceable, but that by limiting such provision it would become valid and enforceable, then such provision will be deemed to be written, construed, and enforced as so limited.
  6. CUMULATIVE RIGHTS. The Parties' rights under this Amendment are cumulative and will not be construed as exclusive of each other unless otherwise required by law.

Instructions for Your Contract Amendment

This contract amendment will help you quickly modify, delete, or add terms to a prior agreement. The following will help clarify how to complete your amendment.


Here you will identify the exact language that you wish to change. Include the exact section number and/or letter if one is available. For instance, if you only wish to amend Section 3(b) and not any of the other subsections under Section 3, then be sure to specify that subsection and only discuss the relevant changes.

Also, be sure to clarify exactly how you are amending the language. If you are only changing one sentence in the section you identify, then explain whether you are only changing that sentence and whether the rest of the section should be considered deleted from the original agreement. For instance, you might enter, "The first sentence of Section 3(b) is amended to read...."

Additional Terms

If you simply want to add additional language to your original agreement and do not want to amend any specific clause section, then you will enter these new terms on this step. Be sure to enter these additional terms exactly how you would want them to appear in the original agreement, being as specific and detailed as possible.

If you want to incorporate an additional document into the original agreement, then you may do this under this step as well. Simply identify the document as specifically as possible and have all parties sign and date the document.

Executing Your Amendment

To execute your amendment, simply have the parties sign and date where indicated. If you choose to include a notary, then the parties should wait to sign until they are in the presence of the notary. Every party signing should receive a copy of the fully executed agreement for safekeeping.

Please note that the language you see here changes depending on your answers to the document questionnaire.
