Common legal issues involve the use of some kind of standard legal forms. Courts and attorneys have created these standardized forms and the use of these forms has been ongoing for a significant period of time. The use of the forms whether by an individual or lawyer does not, in any way, make these forms any less valid or binding. The critical issues is that the form uses the proper language and formatting and complies with appropriate regulations, the document is effective.
Too often a person may find a legal form from a government agency or court website, but these documents will not provide any type of instructions or overviews to help a person complete and file them.
The"do it yourself legal forms" referred by DIY Legal are available in downloadable software format at a price significantly less than the cost of hiring an attorney; which also include the appropriate instructions to complete the forms yourself.
