Common Law Separation Agreement Template

Common law separation agreement template – Can the free legal documents provided on the Net be a replacement for consulting with an attorney?

In some cases, most definitely.

To provide a simple illustration: The law in your state may require a written contract for the sale of goods over a certain value. Or for that matter, you may want to give your parent a power of attorney to sell something on your behalf whilst away on holiday. It does not need specialized legal knowledge to compile a bill of sale for a motorcycle, automobile or other goods or to draw a limited power of attorney.

Likewise, a young person without plenty of assets may want to draft a last will and testament or a living will. For many young people a standard legal template can be used to create their documents and the forms can be downloaded free from the Internet, without incurring legal costs. Of course, it’ll be a different case for a billionaire with various assets and a complicated will where consultation with a legal and/or financial expert is invaluable.

Many parents recognize the need for a medical consent form for a babysitter in case of a medical emergency. Or they might require a more comprehensive temporary guardianship form if their child will be staying with a family member or trusted friend. These sample forms are freely available online.

Free legal documents are particularly valuable when they’re also accompanied by legal guidelines on how best to complete them.

Although the law recognizes oral agreements, it always makes sense to get it in writing to avoid arguments over what exactly was agreed upon. Using sample legal documents to compile your own contracts is no different to lawyers using their existing templates for standard agreements.

Of course there are many instances where you must consult with an attorney. Again, you may use the free legal files and free legal information available on the Internet to do your preparation beforehand and so lower the consulting time – and hours charged.
