Back to School season holds promise for a new beginning. The advertisements lure us to purchase school supplies, crisp new uniforms, stylish shoes and backpacks, to start the new school year refreshed and organized. Whether you have children or grandchildren going back-to-school, or school season is a memory, this is one of the most encouraging times of the year to organize and update your legal documents.
Have you been meaning to update your trust? Do you need to file a new custody agreement? Have you and your spouse decided to legally separate? Do you need to legally change your name? As a registered Legal Document Assistant, I can help you by preparing all of these legal documents. Many people assume that they need an attorney to prepare the documents and so they frequently procrastinate. They dread the expense of attorney fees and fear becoming entangled in a contentious legal mess. Most people just want a straightforward affordable transaction without all the drama. It is understandable that people frequently avoid preparing legal documents because of the negative experiences they have had with the legal system. There is an alternative. Consider hiring a Legal Document Assistant (LDA).
Legal Document Assistants have the same education as a paralegal and are required by law to be registered and bonded in the county in which they have their business. A Legal Document Assistant is not a lawyer. LDA’s are available to assist you with preparing your legal documents as per your direction.
If you know what you want to accomplish, and you want to get the job done without dealing with attorneys, hiring a Legal Document Assistant is a sensible decision. Feel free to contact me if you need assistance finding the right help to get your legal documents completed.
