    Sending a Contract via email to be signed?

    Whats the best way to get a contract signed via email by a client?
    If I write up a contact using Microsoft word or use a template and email it with a request for a signature if the client agrees
    whats to keep the client from changing other aspects of the contract?
    Also I would rather convert the word doc to a Acrobat reader file (pdf ) (looks more professional)
    I have acrobat 9 pro and have tried to add an interactive form field but when I open it up Acrobat reader-x
    I cant interact with it ie.. sign it.
    I have searched the net and read the acrobat documentation to no avail
    All I want is to be able to do is design and send (via email) the clients a professional looking contract/propoasal that is signable!!!

    Does anybody have any ideas, tutorials or sites they can recommend?
    or piont me in the right direction?

    I've used a service called EchoSign for years with great success. They have since been acquired by Adobe which makes the integration with Acrobat even tighter. The process is ridiculously easy for both you and your client, which definitely helps in getting a signed contract sooner than later.

    One more Question
    I'm not an expert with Acrobat pro, before uploading the document to echosign do i just create a text field where the client would sign?

    You can do it either way. Creating the signature area in Acrobat helps EchoSign determine where to place the signature box.
