At SmartLegalForms you are able to assemble a legal document or legal form through your web browser instantly and Try Before You Buy. Moreover, you have the option of purchasing legal forms bundled with legal advice for a fixed fee through our growing network of virtual law firms.
Your documents are created with the help of our intelligent document automation technology, which asks you a series of easy-to-answer questions that tailor themselves to your circumstances. Each question is accompanied with explanatory notes designed to provide you with the information needed to answer the question correctly. Further guidance and legal information is available in the accompanying comprehensive user notes. The use of this document automation technology enables the SmartLegalForms.com network of law firms to keep legal fees low. Traditional law firms generating documents using "cut and paste" methods results in higher costs.
Your document can then either be created for you instantly, or your answers can be submitted to a law firm which completes your document and returns it to you for review.
