PROMISSORY NOTE LEGAL FORMS SOFTWARE
Promissory Notes are legal documents used to create a record of a transaction where money is loaned from one party to another. A Promissory Note provides a way to outline the amount borrowed, the expected repayment schedule, the interest rate, and any other terms to the loan.
Quite simply, creating a legal and valid Promissory Note is a way to "get it in writing" when making a loan to a friend, family member or business associate.
TYPES OF PROMISSORY NOTES INCLUDED:
This Standard Legal Promissory Note Software contains the following legal note forms, each with its own comprehensive instructions for completing the document:
- Promissory Note with Installment Payments Required Upon a Set Payment Schedule
- Promissory Note with Lump Sum Repayment Required Upon an Agreed Upon Date
- Promissory Note with Lump Sum Repayment Required Upon Demand of the Holder
- Cognovit Promissory Note with Installment Payments on a Set Payment Schedule
- Cognovit Promissory Note with a Lump Sum Repayment on an Agreed Upon Date
- Guaranty of Payment Document
[IMPORTANT NOTE: Each one of the Promissory Note options listed above is available for single or multiple borrowers, and for requiring a personal/third party guarantee. However, none of the Promissory Notes offered by Standard Legal are structured to be secured by collateral; see why here.]
Cognovit Promissory Notes create the same legal structure as a Promissory Note, but they also permit the Note Holder to obtain judgment on the Note if any payment or payments are missed -- WITHOUT HAVING TO GO TO A TRIAL. However, some states have passed laws that prohibit the enforcement of cognovit provisions in Promissory Notes. Even if the cognovit provision of this note is not enforceable in the state where the holder resides, the Note itself is still enforceable and a lawsuit can still be initiated should the person signing the note miss any payments.
The Promissory Note Software from Standard Legal is an easy, quick and affordable way to "get it in writing." That way, when money is lent to anyone -- friends, family members or business associates -- the terms are clear in advance, thereby saving any potential confusion or ill-will later!

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS & SOFTWARE FILE SPECIFICATIONS:
Standard Legal's software works on nearly all systems, including Windows, Apple, Mac, Android and Linux. A link to a downloadable .zip file is presented immediately after transaction, which must be expanded to access all of the forms, overviews and instructions. Most computers have a program like WinZip pre-installed to access .zip files; if your computer does not have one, we recommend StuffIt Expander (it's FREE!).
Generally, the legal forms are provided in three formats: Microsoft Word files, standard text files, and Adobe PDF files. TO GET A DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE FUNCTIONALITY THESE FORMATS AND FULLY-WORKING SAMPLES, CLICK HERE. Note that not all forms are provided in all three formats in all cases.
The fully-featured version of Microsoft Word is required to complete the Word-formatted forms. Other open-source and commercial word processing programs like Microsoft Works, WordPerfect, Word Pad, OpenOffice, Google Docs, Note Pad or Simple Text may be used as well, but only with the 'straight text' version of the forms. Finally, the PDF versions of the forms require the download and installation of either Adobe's Acrobat Reader (it's FREE!) or the full commercial version of Adobe Acrobat.
Access to the password-protected online legal forms server (sometimes called "the online version") requires an up-to-date web browser like Internet Explorer, Firefox or Chrome. Once you access the online forms server, read the instructions provided on the main menu and download only the specific legal forms, overviews and instructions you need. Once all of the files are downloaded, they may be completed offline using the programs listed above.
To use any type of software requires a basic understanding of how a computer device operates. To use Standard Legal software, you must be able to complete each of these basic computer tasks: download a software file; expand a .zip file; enter a username and password to access a protected website; navigate a menu; install and launch a program; and open, save then print a completed document. If you do not fully understand how to complete any of these common steps, we recommend you use our Document Preparation Service or find a local attorney to create documents for you.
