Pricing Information and General Questions:
Once you complete this form, we will immediately send you information about our fees, third party costs and other details about the legal process you select below.
Be sure to check your email right after you submit this form!
If you have immediate questions, please contact our office at 800-747-2780 Ext. 0. We typically have staff available 7 days a week, Monday through Sunday, 8:00 am to 8:30 pm.
You Are Ready to Hire:
A People's Choice offers several convenient ways to get started with your legal paperwork. Since 80% of our clients are not local to our corporate office, many of our services can be started through our convenient 24-hour online interview process. It's simple and easy! Keep in mind, our online interviews are just a simple way to collect necessary information for your paperwork. You will NOT be completing any legal forms through this system.
You Need Help Doing Own Forms:
Unfortunately A People's Choice cannot offer "instruction" to people so they can prepare their own legal paperwork. In addition, we also cannot review paperwork people have prepared on their own. We are the perfect low-cost solution for your legal document preparation needs. However, if you are trying to complete your legal paperwork without hiring non-attorney, professional help, we would suggest you contact your local Court Self-Help service who offers that type of assistance.
You Want Legal Advice:
We understand you need legal advice. A People's Choice is a registered legal document assistant. We are not attorneys. Although we are the perfect solution to get legal paperwork prepared at a low cost, California law does NOT allow us to give legal advice. We can answer procedural questions, but if you need legal advice, you will need to talk to an attorney. Contact your County's local Bar Association for a referral consultation with a local attorney.
