What is a Legally Binding Contract?

Under Georgia law, you can pursue a breach of contract lawsuit if you have a legally binding contract. Thus, before suing another party for their failure to fulfill any of their contractual obligations, you have the burden of proving the existence of a legally binding contract and its material terms.

A contract is considered “legally binding” when it meets the following requirements:

If the above-mentioned requirements are met, both parties have a legal obligation to abide by the terms of the contract. Failure to perform under the contract may result in a breach of contract lawsuit. When a breach of contract happens, the breaching party may be ordered to pay damages to the other party.

What Remedies are Available in a Breach of Contract Case?

Depending on the type and language of the contract, Georgia law recognizes three types of legal remedies for a breach of contract:

Under O.C.G.A. § 13-6-2, the non-breaching party is entitled to damages that arise “naturally and according to the usual course of things” as a result of a breach of contract.
