Frequently asked questions

What Essential Elements Should a Legal Contract Cover?

A well-drafted legal contract should include identifying parties, defined terms, purpose, payment terms, termination conditions, confidentiality clauses, indemnity, governing law, and any specific provisions relevant to the agreement’s nature. Customisation based on specific circumstances is crucial and legal advice is recommended for comprehensive and sound documents.

What paperwork is needed to file for divorce?

Commonly required forms include a petition or complaint for divorce, financial statements, and a marital settlement agreement outlining terms for assets, debts, and child custody if applicable.

How do I change my custody and support orders?

Modifying custody or support orders involves filing a petition or motion with the court that issued the original order. You'll need to demonstrate a significant change in circumstances to warrant a modification.

Can I patent software or business methods?

Yes, under certain conditions. Patents for software or business methods may be granted if they meet specific criteria for novelty, utility, and non-obviousness, demonstrating they offer something new and inventive compared to existing technology or methods.

How long does a trademark registration last?

Under the Trade Marks Act, 1999 in India, the initial registration of a trademark is valid for ten years from the date of filing the application. Upon expiration of this period, the trademark can be renewed indefinitely for successive periods of ten years each, provided the renewal fees are paid and all necessary filings are made as per the regulations.

How do I protect a business name?

To safeguard a business name, you might consider registering it as a trademark or doing a name search to ensure it's not already in use. Trademarks offer legal protection and exclusive rights to use the name for your business.

Should I incorporate my business?

Incorporating a business can provide liability protection for its owners and create a separate legal entity. Factors like the type of business, liability concerns, tax implications, and growth plans influence whether incorporation is suitable.
