How to Find Legal Forms Software

In addition to legal forms there are some companies that offer do-it-yourself legal forms software. It is usually downloadable, with a mailed CD option, and contains templates and instructions on how to create a form that meets your needs. Our book How to Use Legal Forms makes a handy companion to these software options, some of which we review below.

Standard Legal’s software provides the necessary tools, information and assistance to help you create the legal documents you need to manage everyday law issues: Last Will and Testaments, Bankruptcy, Incorporation, Leases, Deeds, Employee Manuals, Living Wills, Trusts and others. It offers two different ways for people to manage legal issues on their own: with do-it-yourself legal forms software, or through legal document preparation services.

If you opt for the do-it-yourself legal forms then the software is downloadable, or if you prefer you can request a mailed CD. The software contains complete legal forms and comprehensive instructions to create the state-specific documents required on the law topic you requested.

The alternative legal document preparation service has a professional document preparation specialist create custom legal forms based on the information you provide in a questionnaire. This a good option if you need something more than the download of a simple legal form.

This site offers Quicken legal software for legal wills, living trusts, living wills, powers of attorney, final arrangements and others.

One of the products offered is Quicken WillMaker Plus which allows the user to create a range of documents:

  • Will
  • Living Trusts (including an AB Trust)
  • Health Care Directives (Living Will and Health Care Power of Attorney)
  • Financial Powers of Attorney
  • Final arrangements document
  • Important documents for executors

The way the software works is to take you through a step-by-step interview for every document, and it takes care of making sure the document is in line with the laws of your state. It really is quite powerful software, as is Quicken Legal Business Pro 2009 which has over 140 contracts, forms and worksheets.

This site is the real deal for all things real estate. As well as over 600 forms there it comes with a 45 minutes audio file of tips – all for under $30. But if real estate isn’t your game then this pack isn’t for you. The range of forms is pretty impressive, for example, under the heading Promissory Notes all of the following forms are included:

  • Assignment of Promissory Note
  • Authorization for Release of Information
  • Bank Loan Agreement
  • Guarantee Agreement
  • Guarantee of Debt
  • Letter of Credit
  • Non-Negotiable Promissory Note
  • Non-Recourse Non-Negotiable Promissory Note
  • Promissory Note
  • Unconditional Guarantee Agreement

A very reputable and established firm, Nolo offers a Legal Form Center with software and readily downloadable forms. Nolo is a pretty comprehensive option and has pretty much everything you would need in all the main areas of law:

  • Wills, Trusts & Estate Planning
  • Business, LLCs & Corporations
  • Nonprofits
  • HR & Employment Law
  • Bankruptcy, Foreclosure & Debt
  • Personal Finance & Retirement
  • Real Estate & Rental Property
  • Family Law & Divorce
  • Immigration
  • Patent, Copyright & Trademark

This site distinguished from other services by having attorney Chip Cooper heading it up rather than a legal publishing firm. Chip’s aim is to give his customers the same confidence level you would have with a top law firm. This a subscription site so there is no charge per document, and the site claims that its logical system and carefully worded clauses do all the work to assemble your near-custom document from its database. It’s similar to an expert system.

Further Information

The courts are clogged with people who entered into agreements that don’t afford them the protection they thought they did at the time. Some of the most common mistakes are people using outdated forms that don’t take account of new laws that have been passed, and the inclusion of terms that are unenforceable under the jurisdiction that governs the agreement. The book How to Use Legal Forms helps you avoid these pitfalls.
