Legal Document Preparer Program

Effective July 1, 2003, all individuals and businesses preparing legal documents for others without the supervision of an attorney in good standing with the State Bar of Arizona, must be certified under  Rule 31 , and Arizona Codes of Judicial Administration § 7-208 and § 7-201.


The Legal Document Preparer Program certifies non-attorney legal document preparers in Arizona who provide document preparation assistance and services to individuals and entities not represented by an attorney.  Legal document preparers may provide general legal information but may not give legal advice.
