Something as simple as a promised note, detailing the nephew`s promise to repay his aunt, could have avoided any quarrel over their agreement. Finally, it is less difficult to ask family members for a written loan than to bring them to justice. Where a party is part of it for not having a written contract, an oral contract may be applied even though this is normally required in writing. For example, employers, workers and self-employed contractors may consider it invaluable to document the terms of their agreements in an employment contract or service contract.

The above quotes are only a small part of the rich law and laws relating to the applicability of oral contracts in California.

(H) an agreement that includes all other similar transactions relating to a price or index (including, but not limited to, any transaction or agreement that includes a combination of the above, a ceiling, a floor, a collar or similar transactions in relation to a price, a commodity price, a commodity index, a stock or securities price , a securities index, another price index or a credit price). Also note that the law is fluid with respect to the applicability of the types of contracts created electronically.
