FindLegalForms was founded in 2001, but received its corporation status in 2003. Two attorneys in California founded the company after running a successful law practice for several years. The attorneys saw a need for low-cost legal forms and decided to launch the platform as a way to simplify the process.

Benefits of using FindLegalForms.com include:

Attorney Prepared

The Bad

  • Limited Legal Representation
  • Personal Promissory Notes and Other Financial Matters
  • Confusion With Library
  • Hidden Services
  • Signature Errors

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. These limitations include:

Limited Legal Representation

One of the things that worried about FindLegalForms was the lack of legal representation. While a database of free legal forms is great, we feel that it might be best for potential customers to actually consult with a lawyer when starting their business filings and conducting personal matters. For example, we saw divorce forms provided on the website. In a divorce, it is often best for two parties to consult with a lawyer to determine their best interest.

Personal Promissory Notes and Other Financial Matters

It is often best to go through a bank and an attorney when selling property or taking out collateral to make a purchase. While the forms are valid, a lawyer is in a much better position to draft legal documents to serve the individual parties' best needs.

Confusion With Library

While there is a brief description of each will, the sample forms are blocked out in each page's lower right-hand corner. This makes it difficult to determine the exact provisions of a specific document. Unfortunately, FindLegalForms cannot give you any advice on what type of form to use for your situation.

Hidden Services

If you don't want a free storage service ($4.99 per month), make sure that you don't check this feature when you are checking out. 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 charge).

Signature Errors

While you can e-sign these documents, you're going to need to get a lot of them signed by a notary public.

The Bottom Line

In a nutshell, FindLegalForms is a helpful resource to use if you were looking for basic forms. However, there are some questions about how effective these forms actually are in court. There is not any type of "wizard" to help you determine which legal form was best for your situation. You might accidentally purchase the wrong type of form for each situation.

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, it is advised that a customer would be in a much better position if they simply hired an attorney. An attorney can provide much-needed legal advice, as well as provide the best forms for the appropriate situation.
