California Legal Document Assistant (LDA) Surety Bond

LDA Bond Requirements and Online Application

The California Legal Document Assistant (LDA) Surety Bond is required by the State of California in order to register as an LDA.

California Legal Document Assistant (LDA) Surety Bond

According to Sections 6400 – 6415 of the California Business and Professions Code, a legal document assistant is someone who provides any self-help service to persons who are representing themselves in a legal matter for compensation. The LDA cannot provide legal advice, but can assist the client at their direction.

Legal Document Assistant registration is required in each county where services are performed. The required bond is good for all counties.

To register with each county, the legal document assistant must:

  • Possess a valid government issued picture identification (established by a birth certificate, such as a driver’s license or passport).
  • Provide documentation that you have met the educational requirements of Legal Document Assistant.
  • Remit a $175 fee (for each county of registration)
  • File a California Legal Document Assistant (LDA) Surety Bond in the amount of $25,000 with the County Clerk.
    • Note: this bond is not insurance, it is in place to protect the public from any financial harm caused by the registrant.

See a copy of the Legal Document Assistant Registration document for the County of Sacramento.

You can read more about becoming an LDA in California on the CALDA website.
