Here’s How a Free Legal Waiver Form Can Be Just As Effective as a Paid One
Need a release of liability form for your new business and wondering where to get started?
All new business owners are bootstrapping in one way or another. It’s highly likely that despite the advice you’ve read to hire a law firm to help you write a digital waiver, you simply couldn’t afford legal advice.
The good news is that when you’re just starting, there’s plenty of free waiver form templates available online and plenty of free waiver services as well – though none as generous as WaiverForever.
Our free plan is a great starting point for any business that only needs a small number of online release forms signed a month. We don’t ask you for any credit card information, and your free plan never expires. We want you to be confident in our solution so that when your business scales up, you’ll sign on to one of our paid tiers with confidence.
Read on to learn more about how to start creating your first free waiver online using a template and the benefits our free and paid plans provide to help grow your business.
What to Look For in a Free Electronic Waiver Template
Type in “waiver form template” in Google, and you’ll find no shortage of templates you can use for your industry. But you can’t just pull any waiver off the web and expect it to work for your business.
There are a few different things you need to consider to make sure your waiver is legally enforceable. Be sure to consider these factors when choosing a template:
Make Sure You Use Your Business Name and Address
When choosing a waiver template, the biggest mistake you could make would be not to replace the business name and address. A waiver is a contract between you and the person signing, so if your business information is not correct, the waiver would be void.
Choose a Waiver From a Business From Your State / Province and Country
The laws regarding the language required in a waiver and their enforceability vary wildly from state to state and across different countries. If possible, you should choose a waiver template from a local business to ensure your waiver doesn’t have any legal loopholes.
Choose a Waiver Specific to Your Industry
A skydiving business will have completely different considerations than a gym as the risks are entirely different. Waivers need to be able to set out specific risks for your business, so the reader can release you of liability in the event of personal injury or damage.
Need a Starting Point For Your Free Waiver Search?
Looking for a waiver template with an assumption of risk clause to help you get started? We’ve got you – The WaiverForever team has searched the web for the best free waiver forms from around the web by industry/category, so you don’t have to.

Drag-and-Drop Form Builder
Our waiver builder uses a hassle-free drag and drop system. To add fields, simply click the one you want from the lefthand menu and drag it into place. As you build, you can see what your waiver will look like with our live preview. Once you add a field, you can use arrow buttons to shift its location on the page.
All fields can be used multiple times and edited. For example, you can use various name fields below the primary signatory to sign in their children. All areas you add can either be mandatory or optional.
Fields are also validated and will prompt users to fix a mistake, such as an incorrectly formatted email. You can also add your logo and brand elements as well!
WaiverForever also allows you to add custom questions to your waiver to collect information about your customers. You can add these survey questions in a short answer text field or multiple-choice questions that allow for a single answer or multiple answers. You can then use our waiver analytics dashboard (featured below) to generate professional, color-coded reports that provide insight into your customers.
