What Is a Waiver?

Answer

A waiver is the voluntary surrender of some known right or privilege. A waiver is essentially a unilateral act of one person that results in the surrender of a legal right. The legal right may be constitutional, statutory, or contractual, but the key issue for a court reviewing a claim of waiver is whether the person voluntarily gave up the right.
