A: A Hawaii attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. As a GENERAL matter, if a contract is valid, it should be legal and binding. If it's a standard contract that has been used for years without being challenged and it contains the requirements of a valid contract, so far as offer, acceptance, consideration, legality, and other requisite elements of contract law, there's a good likelihood it is valid. But these are only general considerations of contract law - no one could answer your question as to the validity of your contract without seeing it. Further, no one could answer whether it could hold up in court. Contracts could be challenged in court for any number of reasons - depending on the resourcefulness of the challenger. Good luck
