The California Legal Document Assistant Surety Bond is required by the State of California. It’s also referred to as the LDA Bond.
Who is Considered a Legal Document Assistant?
A legal document assistant is someone who provides any self-help service to persons who are representing themselves in a legal matter for compensation. Legal Document Assistant registration is required in each county where services are performed.
LDA Bond Requirements
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).
- Present a bond in the amount of $25,000 naming the registrant as principal providing the term of the bond, two (2) years, commencement date and expiration date.
- Provide documentation that you have met the educational requirements of Legal Document Assistant.
The state requires a surety bond in the amount of $25,000 in these cases to help ensure that the legal document assistant will not cause any financial harm.
