Legal Document Preparers

What are "certified legal document preparers?"

The Legal Document Preparer Program certifies legal document preparers in Arizona. Legal Document Preparers are certified individuals who prepare or provide legal documents without the supervision of an attorney. Legal Document Preparers may provide general legal information but may not give legal advice. Effective July 1, 2003, all individuals and businesses preparing legal documents without the supervision of an attorney in good standing with the State Bar of Arizona, must be certified pursuant to Rule 31 and Arizona Code of Judicial Administration §7-208.

The Board of Certified Legal Document Preparers has the authority to investigate and prosecute actions and proceedings against Certified Legal Document Preparers.
