    Hello Fernando,

    Validation and calculation scripts are not working on your form because there seems to be some conflict between JotForm scripts and other scripts of your site.

    I suggest you to re-embed your form using iFrame embed script. This will resolve any script conflicts because this is the reason that your form validation does not work. Here is a guide that should help you grab iFrame code: http://www.jotform.com/help/148-Getting-the-Form-iFrame-Code

    Do let us know if the issue persist.

    Thank you!

    It looks like that the form is conflicting with the jQuery scripts on your page. Please try to use an iFrame version of the form.

    If you need any further assistance on this, please create a new thread. We will be happy to help.
