Be Careful When Preparing Legal Documents

By Benjamin Rowe

If you are willing to devote a little time for research and you are confident of your own capabilities, then it may not be necessary for you to consult a lawyer every time you want to have some legal documents prepared.

A host of websites offer inexpensive, or in some cases free, preparation of many legal documents for everything ranging from wills and estate planning, to divorces and name changes, to setting up and incorporating a business.

Some sites offer very detailed text or sometimes even videos to guide you in choosing your required services. After creating an account, there's a site which requires you to answer from a prepared set of questions and your answers becomes the basis of a custom document. There are sites which offer the simple forms for free while other sites allow you to download files for reference in making forms yourself.

These sites may be appropriate if you have fairly simple circumstances to deal with and straightforward answers to the questions, but there are many issues that will still be left in your hands.

Do you know what you are going to do next after you have generated that legal document? This information may also be found on the website initially, but it is very likely that applicable regulations or processes vary from state to state or sometimes even per locality. An attorney would handle those measures for you, seeing that paperwork was properly filed or, in the case of a will which doesn't have to be filed with a legal entity until you die, safely stored,

You may hit a bump on the road when your answers are not straightforward. Take for example, a man who is on his second marriage decides to leave his house to his children after he dies, but is agreeable to the fact that his wife live there until such time that he or she passes away. Websites may not be able to offer solutions for a lifetime estate.

The more complex your issues are, the less likely the chances that you can handle them on-line. For those cases, you are going to need an attorney so that you can ask questions until you get the answers you need. The good thing though is that most of these forms don't ask for payment unless you have completed them. So you may cancel halfway through, when it is already apparent that it would be insufficient to provide the results you were looking for. Don't worry about the supposedly wasted time you have spent trying to do the thing on your own, at least it prepared you better for the actual call to the attorney's office.

You might be pleasantly surprised to find out that a visit to the attorney's office is not as costly as you thought it would be. When evaluating your options, contact the attorney's office first to know their rates for a particular service that you are looking for. If the costs don't vary that much you might as well leave the paperwork to the experts.
