Some may get the impression that document preparers are in constant fear of committing the unlicensed practice of law. However, this isn't exactly so. Document preparers are in constant fear that the Florida Bar believes we might be committing the unlicensed practice of law, and initiate an investigation that will try to insert itself into every facet of our business. For that reason, we do our best to avoid even the slightest appearance, whimper, or whisper that we may be engaging in UPL. So we talk about it, have webinars about it, focus conferences on it, and mandate this course about it.
Because, all document preparers really want to do is continue our businesses without interference. We recognize that without our services, many consumers would go without any services.
This course is mandatory for all members, and needs to be taken annually. Once you pay for the course and show evidence that you completed it by submitting the course completion form, the course essay, and/ or the the course quiz, you won't have to pay for the course again. But, if after paying for the course, a member fails to submit any of those things, the member will be required to pay for the course again at the time of renewal and may be subject to suspension of their membership.
The course is inside the Members Only pages.
