Who is OC Legal Self-Help Center?


OC Legal Self-Help Center is a registered and bonded Legal Document Assistant (commonly referred to as an LDA) to assist you with all your document preparation needs.


PLEASE NOTE:  A Legal Document Assistant is NOT a Lawyer.  By law, we cannot give you legal advice or represent you in the courts in any matter.  If you need to consult with an attorney, your LDA will be able to provide you with a referral.


An LDA is an experienced professional who is authorized to prepare legal documents for a client, but only at the direction of the client. In other words, an LDA is there to assist the “self-help” client handle their own legal matters without the cost of an attorney.


Since even the best legal, self-help books can be confusing and overwhelming, OC Legal Self-Help Center can provide invaluable assistance with routine legal tasks, such as typing and filing the paperwork for uncontested divorces, bankruptcies, wills, and many other types of documents.

Again, because an LDA is forbidden to practice law of any sort, OC Legal Self-Help Center cannot make suggestions as to what the client needs done for a particular matter, or what forms that the client must file with the state or the other party to the action.


However, just because an LDA is only there to fill out forms doesn’t mean OC Legal Self-Help Center aren’t an invaluable resource for your legal matter. Many, if not all, legal forms are very confusing; incorrectly filled out forms will delay your case, possibly for a long time. OC Legal Self-Help Center can help you avoid the pitfalls and also make sure every important detail on a form is accounted for. This alone makes OC Legal Self-Help Center the best choice for your self-help legal endeavors.
