The Delay Notice should only be used when your relationship with the Client has reached a point that you are uncomfortable progressing on the project because of negative developments in that relationship.  I call it a “nuclear bomb” effect, and it will redefine your relationship.  That being said, it is sometimes necessary to stop production until issues are ironed out.  When you do take this step, it is imperative that you document your reasons for doing so and your willingness and desire to settle matters quickly and continue the project.  This form will provide that documentation.
