CANADIAN LEGAL DOCUMENTS
Welcome to the site that offers information and guides to legal documents in Canada. In recent years, more people are finding the chore of legal services easier and less expensive by completing their own legal documents.
This site will assist you in finding the correct document(s) for your cause. It will also supply you with links to various sources of legal documents and forms that can either be purchased or obtained free. This site does not sell or provide legal documents for download; it is solely an information center dealing with Canadian Legal Documents, pertaining to Canadian law only.
Although some documents and forms can be completed by an individual without having to involve a lawyer, in many situations, it is advisable to obtain legal advice. For instance, in a divorce case that is complex, i.e. children, property and various investments, a lawyer’s counsel is highly recommended in order to ensure that the process satisfies the participants as well as the law. Note that legal forms and documents that are submitted incomplete or incorrectly completed can cause significant delay in the procedure.
