As regards a contract fee, I think that one should have a right to make written contracts without having to pay a fee. But in that case, one cannot expect one's contracts to be enforced. If one wants them enforced, then one should be willing to pay a fee and not expect the service to be provided free of charge. That being the case, most people would be willing to pay for the service as a kind of insurance against being ripped off with no legal recourse.
