The Bad

  • Limited Legal Representation
  • Personal Promissory Notes and Other Financial Matters
  • Checking Out

While FindLegalForms.com has found a way to simplify the legal forms process by providing thousands of legal documents to consumers. However, the platform also comes with limitations and drawbacks that any prospective user may want to be aware of.

Limited Legal Representation

One thing a client or business might need is legal representation which is something FindLegalForms lacks. While a database of legal forms is great, some may feel it best to actually consult with someone within the legal profession when starting a business as well as conducting various personal matters. For example, divorce forms are provided but not all divorce filings will be the same. Some individuals may want to hire an attorney to ensure that they are getting the best legal advice. Unfortunately, FindLegalForms does not offer lawyer referral resources.

Personal Promissory Notes and Other Financial Matters

It is often best to go through a bank and hire an attorney when selling a property or taking out collateral to make a purchase. While the forms are attorney prepared, document review is not available. A lawyer is in a much better position to draft legal documents to fit client needs.

Checking Out

Once you have found the documents you need make sure to check the box that states you do not want to sign up for the monthly subscription. Pay close attention to this because if you don't then you will be charged an additional $4.99 a month for the subscription service. Additionally, make sure that you download your document in the right format. If you make a mistake, you have to call customer service to fix this and there is an additional fee.

The Bottom Line

In a nutshell, FindLegalForms is a helpful resource to use if you are looking for basic legal forms. However, there are some questions about how effective these forms actually are in court. While there is information about each document be sure that you know which one you actually need. This can be hard to determine if you have not spoken with someone who can provide legal advice.

FindLegalForms is recommended if you are trying to get an easy-to-use form for situations such as tenant-landlord relationships. Additionally, there are many free forms that can also be used for certain contractual situations. However, for "high-intensity" legal situations consider hiring an attorney who can provide situation-specific legal advice.
