Ask FALDP Members

We make every effort to answer your question as soon as we can. We encourage you to ask FALDP members to help you find the information you seek. When consumers ask FALDP members to answer questions, it is our policy to include a link to an authoritative source where you can find more information.

Sometimes we combine several similar questions to create a hypothetical scenario. In other words, the specific question may not have been asked by just one individual, but indicates the answers that many are seeking. FALDP and staff make no effort to check sources; or check content for correctness. Although, we make every effort to provide timely and correct information, we will not be held responsible for errors, mistakes, or misinformation. We provide legal information NOT legal advice. If you need legal advice about your specific situation, please seek the advice of an attorney. The information found on this site and in these pages is not meant to be a substitute for legal advice.

How Can We Serve You?

Do you have a question, looking for information, or just want a local Legal Document Preparer Professional to help you with your legal document needs?

Ask your question. Let us know what you are looking for, give as many relevant details as you can, and remember to leave your contact information.

As legal document preparers, we are prohibited from giving legal advice, and so we only provide general information. We never mean to suggest to you what you should or should not do, except that we might suggest you continue your research or seek the advice or an attorney.
