When it comes time to get legal documents, many people simply want the finished product. They don't want do-it-yourself forms.
That's because legal forms software can be a challenge for people who aren't computer savvy, or who aren't knowledgeable about the law. Downloading the software, opening the files, reading the instructions, then correctly completing the documents can be a bit intimidating.
But the thought of paying an attorney a big chunk of money to get finished documents isn't something most people want, either.
So what option is available that solves both of these issues? Legal Document Preparation Service from Standard Legal!

Plus for an extra $9.95, we will PRINT the final documents, create a BACK-UP CD, and MAIL it all to you! Just open the package and sign!
Answer some easy-to-understand questions and make a few simple legal decisions and you can save HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS compared to a lawyer or law firm. And the finished documents will match those created by any attorney in quality and accuracy!

The four-step process for using our Legal Document Preparation Service is simple:
1) Review the Document Preparation topics available and purchase the service you want.
2) After checkout, Standard Legal will provide a link to an online questionnaire or will email you a questionnaire specific to the topic you purchased. Simply access the online questionnaire or reply to that email: read each question and answer it as clearly and completely as you can. (If you find the written Q&A process too difficult, simply call or email us to schedule a phone conference with you; we will call at the arranged time to ask those same question over the phone, taking down your answers exactly as you give them to us.)
3) Standard Legal will review the information you provide to us from this questionnaire, checking it for consistency, completeness, spelling, grammar and other basics. We will then forward a confirmation email to you outlining the data that has been collected. If a response to a question is omitted or unclear, Standard Legal may contact you again to obtain additional information.
4) Within 3 business days after this final data confirmation, Standard Legal will provide the legal documents you have ordered in PDF format by email, which you then print out yourself. Detailed instructions covering what to do with the signed, fully executed documents are provided as well. If you do not have access to a printer, Standard legal offers printed documents delivered by first-class mail for an additional fee during checkout.
See? Simple, affordable and stress-free. That's the process for Standard Legal's Document Preparation Services!
By law, Standard Legal is not authorized to advise you as to which documents you should use or may need; such advice would be considered the "practice of law." Under the guidelines for legal document preparation services, you must make all legal decisions yourself -- including decisions about the type of documents you need.
Standard Legal provides detailed descriptions of each of the document sets available for use in its preparation services. Standard Legal can also provide a sample of each document, so that you can see a portion of any document so that you can be sure that the completed document will meet your needs. Detailed information concerning each specific document preparation topic is also available, as well as general information about most subjects at the Standard Legal Law Library.
After you have reviewed the sample forms, read the topic-specific information we offer concerning the documents, and have reviewed our Law Library articles, if you still do not know which document or service will best suit your needs, you should either consult an attorney before choosing your documents or consider having an attorney handle your case. Visit our Attorney Find program for details if you choose that route.
Then you should! Standard Legal offers a variety of do-it-yourself legal form software titles that you can purchase and prepare on your own, which will save you even more money. If you know which forms you need and feel that you have the ability to prepare the documents yourself on your computer, Standard Legal's self-help software is the way to go! Learn more...
Say you've already purchased one of Standard Legal's do-it-yourself legal form software titles.
Then you decide that you would be better served having one of our professionals prepare those same legal documents for you.
No worries! Standard Legal will credit the full price of the software you've already purchased against the price of the document preparation service you want!
So if you've already purchased the Last Will and Testament software for $14.95 and then decide you want Standard Legal to prepare a completed Will document for you, we will deduct the $14.95 you've already spent on the software from the price of the document preparation service! It's how we treat customers with respect.
Note: the title of the software purchased and the type of document you wish to have us prepare must match. In other words, credit is provided only if you want us to prepare a Will document and you previously purchased the Will software. Further, the software purchase must have been made in the same name as the person for whom the documents will be prepared, and that purchase must be verifiable in our records.
You went above and beyond my expectations. I gave you less than that which would be ideal to work with. But I received what I requested and then some. Consider me more than a happy customer, please see me as your advocate.

IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS: The State of California has costly and complex registration requirements for each county in that state to become what they call "legal document assistants". Because of these onerous county-by-county requirements, Standard Legal has decided not to provide document preparation services to any California resident. Should a California resident place an order for Document Preparation, Standard Legal will automatically convert that order into one for legal forms software shipped on a CD, and we will credit the price difference between the two orders. We will email access links to download the legal form software files at once, and we will ship the CD for the title that matches the original purchase topic. California residents can also use our FREE Attorney Find service to find a local attorney to create legal documents for them, if they do not feel comfortable creating documents on their own.
DISCLAIMER: Standard Legal Network's documentation preparation service is not a law firm, does not act as your attorney, and is not a substitute for the advice for an attorney. Standard Legal Network does not provide any legal advice, and none of the information provided herein or on any completed document should be construed as legal advice. Standard Legal Network can assist you in completing legal forms when you are seeking to represent yourself in your own legal matters. If you need legal representation, are involved in litigation, or have complex legal issues that cannot be handled or dealt with on your own, you should seek competent legal advice and/or hire an attorney. Our legal documentation preparation service uses the answers you provide to automatically populate Standard Legal software legal forms and complete them on your behalf. Our review of your answers is limited solely to completeness, spelling and grammar, internal consistency of names, addresses and the like. At no time do we review your answers for legal sufficiency, draw legal conclusions, provide advice or apply the law to the facts of your particular situation. Our company cannot provide legal advice for any situation or case. As such we cannot make personal recommendations as to what documents should or should not be used and cannot attempt to predict the legal impact of using any certain response or form. This document preparation service is not intended to create an attorney-client relationship, and by using our services, no attorney-client relationship will be created. You are totally and solely responsible for your own selections and actions. Again, Standard Legal Network cannot make any recommendations for any corrections or changes to the documents or their application, content or use. Any text that is to be revised or replaced must be identified appropriately and detailed replacement text must be provided by the customer. In short, our customers have the option of either (a) providing us with detailed exact replacement text or (b) revising the document themselves. If Standard Legal Network is asked to make drastic changes or ongoing revisions to any documents, additional charges may be warranted, after receiving the customer's direct approval.
