Begin researching case law, from your home state, regarding the parol evidence rule and (1) ambiguity, (2) conditions precedent, and (3) fraud.
The actual contract between Ms. Hayle and Mr. Hailz Saytum will be provided tomorrow.
Assignment Facts
Hayle and Hailz Saytun were married by the Satanic Temple in 2021, but did not have a marriage certificate filed with the state, so family law does not apply. Instead, Mr. Hailz Saytun would like to have their marriage contract void, due to conditions precedent and fraud, or, in the alternative, have the contract modified, claiming ambiguity. Ms. Halyle Saytun argues that the written contract is a complete representation of their intentions, mutually and freely agreed to, thus, fully enforceable under the parol evidence rule.
Together Forever?
Select which ONE of the two statements you are going to defend.
With all conditions precedent met, the written contract is a clear representation of the parties’ mutual assent and freely agreed-upon intentions.
The written contract is ambiguous, void due to unmet conditions precedent, and/or void due to fraud.
Assignment Instructions
Read through the Grading Criteria and the Submission Guidelines (provided below). Do not begin drafting a response until you have fully understood how it will be evaluated.
Do you know what is required and how to submit your work? If so, then let’s talk about love ’til damnation!
Draft a five-paragraph essay supporting the statement you chose. Use this outline to organize your five paragraphs:
Introduction of the statement you chose. Discuss your analysis of each element (i.e., a very brief summary of “Body-Paragraph One, Two, and Three”).
Body Paragraph One. Explain conditions precedent by discussing the facts and the court’s analysis from a state case. Apply the assignment facts to that case, demonstrating how the condition has been or has not been met. If conditions precedent have been met, the contract is enforceable. If conditions have not been met, the contract is void.
Body Paragraph Two. Explain fraud (as it relates to contract law) by discussing the facts and the court’s analysis from a state case. Apply the assignment facts to that case, demonstrating the existence of fraud (causing the contract to be void) or the lack of fraud (causing the contract to be enforceable).
Body Paragraph Three. Explain ambiguity (as it applies to contractual wording) by discussing the facts and the court’s analysis from a state case. Apply the assignment facts to that case, demonstrating ambiguity (parol evidence rule exception applies, allowing the introduction of evidence) or no ambiguity (parol evidence rule applies, barring the introduction of evidence).
Conclusion. Applying the assignment facts, discuss the likely outcome of each issue: conditions precedent, fraud, and parol evidence rule.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
