Why Legal Forms Online Are So Popular

Saturday, February 14th, 2009

The cost of hiring a lawyer can be truly exorbitant, particularly if you are only needing him to send a legal form. To save those hundreds of dollars, why don’t you check online for the forms? There are forms available for all types of legal problems and complaints. Nonetheless, you do have to be careful about a few things before you jump into it.

The internet can provide the necessary information to help you choose the business form that is needed for your special problem. But there are many things you need to know before you fill out these forms, so be prepared. You can save yourself a ton of money, if the problem isn’t too complex and you are armed with knowledge and the correct forms.

Unfortunately, the laws are not identical throughout the United States. A corporate form that was correct for Chicago, may well not be the proper choice for New York. Every state has its own laws, so make sure the forms you are looking at online are for the state you are in.

There are city, county, state and federal laws, and there are business forms available for all of them. Since most of the things you do will involve either city or state regulations, make sure that you specify online the city and state your are living and or working in.

A good example would be if you needed to get a birth certificate. In this case, you would need to go online to the state you were born in. There you would find the correct online form to fill out to have one sent to you. If you are submitting health forms, ask yourself who wants this information? This could be for a city job, a county health program, etc. And the protocol at each level and in every state may very well be entirely different. This could end up costly in both time and money.

If you are inexperienced at doing on line research for legal forms, and are in a quandary as to state laws, you might try calling a local lawyer or a paralegal to ask them where to look or what a specific law is. This information will probably be free, but make sure of it before you ask any questions.

Because it is most important to follow the laws and rules to the letter, whether you need simple business forms, corporate forms, or are simply requesting health documents, remember to find the answers before you fill out and submit the forms. However, many of the online legal form sites volunteer the necessary information that you will need for the state , county, or city you are in. Look for a site that does this. You may also be given a choice of downloading the form, filling it out and mailing it, or filling it out online and emailing.

What is a Medical Power of Attorney?

Monday, September 22nd, 2008

A medical durable power of attorney (or healthcare proxy) allows you to appoint a person you trust to act on your behalf as your healthcare agent (or surrogate decision maker). This is a person who is authorized to make medical decisions should you become unable to do so.. As with a living will, before it is possible for a a medical power of attorney to legally go into effect, a person’s physician must conclude that the patient is unable to make his/her own medical decisions. In addition, if it is determined that a person has ever regained the ability to make these types of decisions, the agent cannot legally continue to act on that person’s behalf. These documents are usually legally binding even when they come in conflict with the wishes of the individual’s immediate family.

Fixed Rate Mortgages

Sunday, April 27th, 2008

The monthly payments for 30 year or 15 year fixed mortgages are the main considerations for many people who are looking to buy a home. Many people wait until they are older before taking on the responsibility of a mortgage so an early payment of this large debt is an important issue to think about. In a situation as important as this time needs to be spent considering all the available options. Probably the most important point is a guarantee of a constant interest rate for the duration of the loan.

It is not uncommon to see lenders offering deals that are too good to be true. Loans agreed with a 15 year fixed mortgage keep the same interest (more…)
