Legal Document Preparation Business

Before beginning a Legal Document Preparation Business, a good amount of soul searching and forethought is in order. Almost every legal document preparer who you ask -- Why did you become a legal document preparer? -- will give you a very personal answer. Very few of us planned to be in this business. Many legal document preparers had planned to go to law school, or went to law school and then decided to become legal document preparers instead.

Many others completed a paralegal or legal assisting course of study, and worked for a law office for a time. Many legal document preparers continue to work as "freelance or contract paralegals" alongside their document preparation businesses. By definition a paralegal is supervised directly by an attorney.


Becoming a Legal Document Preparer


In Florida, legal document preparers are lay practitioners who provide document preparation services directly to the public. There is no specific licensing or education requirement to become a Florida legal document preparer.

The Florida Association of Legal Document Preparers, FALDP, has created some basic standards to join this association. The basic standards are both academic and experiential. Years of experience preparing Florida legal documents can substitute for formal academic training.

FALDP offers online courses for new legal document preparers, and for legal document preparers relocating to Florida from other states.
