What is a Legal Document Preparer

Legal document preparers are licensed by the state of Arizona. Generally, legal document preparers can provide legal document services to clients at a lower cost than a lawyer. We can help with preparation of legal documents, such as Power of Attorney, Deeds, Wills, and court filings. While we cannot provide legal advice the same way an attorney would, we can provide legal information to aid the process and help you determine the best options. We can write up many documents at a far lower cost than an attorney. If we cannot assist, we will let you know right away and refer you to someone who can. 

Our Services

Senior Planning offers a complete selection of legal documents related to long term care and estate planning. This includes advanced directives, Arizona Power of Attorney documents, and Arizona Wills. If you are looking to apply to ALTCS, we can create an income only trust, also known as a Miller trust for your or your loved one. ALTCS applicants who are above the monthly income allowance, but still want to become eligible for benefits, must use a Miller Trust. If you need an income only trust for to move your ALTCS application along, give us a call today. Also, we can provide advanced directives such as a Living Will.

Arizona Legal Document Preparer vs. Lawyer

“Do I need a lawyer for this?” is a common question we hear. Each situation is unique and depending on what you need, the answer will vary. A lawyer can offer legal advice, which is something that legal document preparers cannot do.  For complex legal issues, a lawyer may be the best option, regardless of cost. However, many people simply need documents like trusts, POAs, or wills to have on hand for the future and do not want to pay attorney fees. This is where we can help. If you need any legal document prepared, and you would prefer a more cost effective option, give us a call.

Other Services

Senior Planning offers a host of other long term care planning services. While we can prepare legal documents for a person of any age, if you or a loved one has daily care needs and is starting to need more help, our agency can assist you. If you or your loved one is looking for assisted living or any other form of care, we offer a completely free placement service. We will help you find a care situation that works with your budget, care needs, and location all at no cost to your or your family. If we can’t find anywhere in your budget, we can assist with applying for state benefits to cover the cost of care. No matter what type of eldercare, estate planning, or legal document questions you have, we can help.
