Q: In oklahoma, if you have a contract with another person but only one person signs the paper, is it still legal?
A: Contract is formed when two parties have a mutual agreement and consideration. This is why oral contracts are technically still a valid contract. However, since you have attempted to formalize it with a document, this leads the courts to believe that an agreement is made when both parties have signed the agreement. This is general view, and each case and contract are different, therefore you need to have an attorney look your case/issue over for your best potential outcome.
A: A written contract is generally enforceable against the person who signed it. However, the question comes up as to whether there is actually a contract if only one party signed it. This situation is highly dependent on the specific facts of your situation. You should consult with a local attorney who understands contract law.
