Legal Forms for Everyone is the ultimate self-help legal guide that will save hours of research time and money in legal fees. Written by an experienced attorney, this book is complete with the most commonly needed, ready-to-use legal forms and precise instructions and checklists on how to use them, as well as advice about when you should hire an attorney. In addition, all the forms are online on a supplemental website to aid in customizing for individual needs.
Readers will find forms and advice for a variety of legal situations, including preparing a will, avoiding probate, buying and selling real estate, handling divorce or separation, getting a new name, copyrights and trademarks, bankruptcy, and so much more.

Updated information in filing fees, exemptions, and forms for filing for bankruptcy
