Incorporation Document Preparation Service
CUSTOMIZED INCORPORATION DOCUMENTS DRAFTED BY OUR PROFESSIONALS
Because a corporation is a separate legal entity in the eyes of the law, many business owners opt to incorporate their business after a certain stage of growth. Standard Legal’s Document Preparation professionals can help you through this process! Don’t spend time wading through a variety of forms and requirements when affordable help is available from Standard Legal!
IMPORTANT NOTE: Standard Legal’s document preparation service allows only for the formation of a FOR-PROFIT DOMESTIC CORPORATION. Because the requirements are wholly different, document preparation service for not-for-profit corporations or other foreign corporate structures are not available.
ANSWER SIMPLE QUESTIONS, GET FINISHED LEGAL DOCUMENTS READY-FOR-SIGNATURE!
Customers receive the following documents as a part of the XXX Document Preparation Service package:
Articles of Incorporation – Standard Legal’s Document Preparation professionals will provide fully completed Articles of Incorporation (in some states, this document is called a Charter or some similar name) that are ready for your signature and filing with the appropriate state government entity.
Standard Legal’s document preparation professionals will not only fully and completely prepare the Articles using the specific information that you supply, but will also provide you with the necessary cover letters permitting you to accurately submit the Articles to the appropriate governmental agency.
We will also inform you of the required filing fee that must accompany the filed documents. All you need to do is sign the Articles as instructed, include the required filing fee and mail the completed documents. Your corporation will then be formed!
ADDITIONAL DOCUMENTS INCLUDED WITH THIS INCORPORATION PREPARATION SERVICE:
Using the information that you supply, Standard Legal’s document preparation service will prepare the following documents specific to your particular business and its incorporation.
These documents contain the required information for establishing the rules that will govern the corporation once the articles of incorporation have been submitted to the State, approved by the State and filed with the State:
Proceedings of Incorporators – this document “gets the corporation going” by providing for the price of shares, who will purchase the shares and at what price, and other required information.
Code of Regulations – this document provides for the election of the corporate directors and sets forth the “rules” for the operation of the corporation.
By-Laws – this document provides for the election of the corporate officers of and creates further general operation rules for the day-to-day business of the corporation.
Meeting Minutes Forms – after the Corporation is formed, general Meeting Minutes forms for both shareholder and director meetings will be required – and Standard Legal will provide you with meeting note pages captioned with your company’s name for use at required meetings.
Blank Stock Certificates – blank Stock Certificates listing your business name can also be provided (at an additional cost) so that you can create and issue shares of stock to the company’s shareholders.
Standard Legal will also provide you with information on how you can easily obtain a federal tax identification number as well as information that will allow you to determine if other state licenses are required to be filed for your new corporation.
IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS: The State of California has costly and complex registration requirements for each county in that state to become what they call “legal document assistants”. Because of these onerous county-by-county requirements, Standard Legal has chosen not to provide document preparation services to any California resident. Should a California resident place an order for Document Preparation, Standard Legal will email you asking if you wish to convert that order into one for legal forms software. If so, we will credit the price difference between the two orders and send you links to access your software download. California residents can also use our FREE Attorney Find service to find a local attorney, if they prefer to have legal documents drafted for them.

WHAT IS THE PROCESS TO CREATE A FINISHED LEGAL DOCUMENT?
The four-step process for using our Legal Document Preparation Service is simple:
1) Review the Document Preparation topics available and purchase the service you want.
2) After checkout, Standard Legal will provide a link to an online questionnaire or will email you a questionnaire specific to the topic you purchased. Simply access the online questionnaire or reply to that email: read each question and answer it as clearly and completely as you can. (If you find the written Q&A process too difficult, simply call or email us to schedule a phone conference; we will call at the arranged time to ask those same question over the phone, taking down your answers exactly as you give them to us.)
3) Standard Legal will review the information you provide to us from this questionnaire, checking it for consistency, completeness, spelling, grammar and other basics. We will then forward a confirmation email to you outlining the data that has been collected. If a response to a question is omitted or unclear, Standard Legal may contact you again to obtain additional information.
4) Within 3 business days after this final data confirmation, Standard Legal will provide the legal documents you have ordered in PDF format by email, which you then print out yourself. Detailed instructions covering what to do with the signed, fully executed documents are provided as well. If you do not have access to a printer, Standard legal offers printed documents delivered by first-class mail for an additional fee during checkout.
See? Simple, affordable and stress-free. That’s the process for Standard Legal’s Document Preparation Services!
HOW DO I KNOW WHICH LEGAL DOCUMENTS I NEED?
By law, Standard Legal is not authorized to advise you as to which documents you should use or may need. Such advice would be considered the “practice of law.” Under the guidelines for legal document preparation services, you must make all legal decisions yourself, including decisions about the type of documents you need.
Standard Legal provides detailed descriptions of each of the document sets available for use in its preparation services. Standard Legal can also provide a sample of each document, so that you can see a portion of any document so that you can be sure that the completed document will meet your needs. Detailed information concerning each specific document preparation topic is also available, as well as general information about most subjects at the Standard Legal Law Library.
After you have reviewed the sample forms, read the topic-specific information we offer concerning the documents, and have reviewed our Law Library articles, if you still do not know which document or service will best suit your needs, you should either consult an attorney before choosing your documents or consider having an attorney handle your case. Visit our Attorney Find program for details if you choose that route.
WHAT IF I CAN COMPLETE A LEGAL DOCUMENT MYSELF?
Then you should! Standard Legal offers a variety of do-it-yourself legal form software titles that you can purchase and prepare on your own, which will save you even more money. If you know which forms you need and feel that you have the ability to prepare the documents yourself on your computer, Standard Legal’s self-help software is the way to go! Learn more >
CREDIT TOWARD DOCUMENT PREPARATION SERVICE
Say you’ve already purchased one of Standard Legal’s do-it-yourself legal form software titles.
Then you decide that you would be better served having one of our professionals prepare those same legal documents for you.
No worries! Standard Legal will credit the full price of the software you’ve already purchased against the price of the document preparation service you want!
So if you’ve already purchased the Last Will and Testament software for $14.95 and then decide you want Standard Legal to prepare a completed Will document for you, we will deduct the $14.95 you’ve already spent on the software from the price of the document preparation service! It’s how we treat customers with respect.
NOTE: the title of the software purchased and the type of document you wish to have us prepare must match. In other words, credit is provided only if you want us to prepare a Will document and you previously purchased the Will software. Further, the software purchase must have been made in the same name as the person for whom the documents will be prepared, and that purchase must be verifiable in our records.
