Legal forms online - worthless or real?

Recommended Posts

You know how you can buy/download/purchase all sorts of DIY legal forms these days without a lawyer per hour involved for a million different purposes...


What do you guys think about them, are they the real deal or how are they treated in a court action?


Any experiences or opinions out there?

You have to be careful about laws that differ by state. So for example real estate law might be slightly different in each state and you wouldn't want to use a generic form that they say works with all states. You would want something that was crafted for your state. I think real estate and wills are two areas that you would want to do more research to find out if you are okay.


Also I would say that if the legal form has to do with any thing significant - like who inherits your money and takes care of your kids in case you die. It is worth it to hire a lawyer.


If it is some something insignificant, then it is probably okay.
