relationship. The information, reports, and forms are not a substitute for the advice of your own attorney. The law is a personal matter
and no general information or forms or like the kind Docstoc provides can always correctly fit every circumstance.
Note: Carefully read and follow the Instructions and Comments contained in this document for your customization to suit your specific
circumstances and requirements. You will want to delete the Instructions and Comments from open bracket (“[“) to close bracket (“]”)
after reading and following them. You (or your attorney) may want to make additional modifications to meet your specific needs and the
laws of your state. The Instructions and Comments are not a substitute for the advice of your own attorney.
◊ Where within this document you see this symbol: ◊ or an instruction states “Insert any number you choose◊,” or something similar, or
there is a blank for the user to complete, please note that although Docstoc believes the information or number may be any that the user
chooses, and that there is no law governing what the information or number should be, you might want to verify this, including by
consulting with your own attorney practicing in your state. Because the law is different from jurisdiction to jurisdiction and the laws are
subject to change, Docstoc cannot guarantee—and disclaims all guarantees—that it is correct for the information or number to be
anything that the user chooses.
The information, forms, instructions, tips, comments, decision tree alternatives and choices, reports, and services in and through Docstoc
are not legal advice, but are general information / forms on general issues often encountered designed to help Docstoc users, members,
purchasers, and subscribers address their own needs. But information, including tips, general forms, instructions, comments, decision
tree alternatives and choices, and reports, no matter how seemingly customized to conform to the laws and regulations applicable to you,
is not the same as legal advice, which may be the specific application of laws and regulations by lawyers licensed to practice law in your
state to the specific circumstances and needs of individuals and entities. Some states, counties, municipalities, and other governmental
divisions, have highly specific laws and regulations, and our information / forms / reports may not take all those specific laws and
regulations into consideration, although we tried to do so.
Docstoc is not a law firm and the employees and Handymans (including attorneys, if any) of Docstoc are not acting as your attorneys,
and none of them are a substitute for the advice of your own attorney licensed to practice law in your state. The employees or
Handymans of Docstoc, who wrote or modified any form, instructions, tips, comments, decision tree alternatives and choices, and
reports, are NOT providing legal or any other kind of advice and are not creating or entering into an Attorney-Client relationship. Any
such form, instruction, tips, comments, decision tree alternatives and choices, and reports were most likely NOT prepared or reviewed by
an attorney licensed to practice law in your state, and, therefore, the employees or Handymans could not provide you with legal advice
even if they or Docstoc wanted to. Even though we take every reasonable effort to attempt to make sure our information / forms / reports
are accurate, up to-date, and useful, we recommend that you consult a lawyer licensed to practice law in your state if you want
professional assurance that our information, forms, instructions, tips, comments, decision tree alternatives and choices, and reports; your
interpretation of it or them; and the information and input that you provide are appropriate to your particular situation. Application of
these general principles and wording to particular circumstances should be done by a lawyer who has consulted with you in confidence,
learned all relevant information, and explored various options. Before acting on these general principles and general wording, you might
want to hire a lawyer licensed to practice law in the jurisdiction to which your question pertains. The information, forms, instructions,
tips, comments, decision tree alternatives and choices, and reports, available on and through Docstoc are not legal advice and are not
guaranteed to be correct, complete, accurate, or up-to-date. Because the law is different from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, they are subject
to changes, and there are varying interpretations and applications by different courts and governmental and administrative bodies, and
Docstoc cannot guarantee—and disclaims all guarantees—that the information, forms, and reports on or through the site and services are
completely current or accurate. Please further note that laws change and are regularly amended; therefore, the provisions, names, and
section numbers of statutes, codes, or regulations, and the types of permits or licenses within any forms or reports, may not be 100%
correct, as they may be partially or wholly out of date and some relevant ones may have been omitted or misinterpreted.
Docstoc is not permitted to engage in the practice of law. Docstoc is prohibited from providing any kind of advice, explanation,
opinion, or recommendation to a consumer about possible legal rights, remedies, defenses, options, selection, or completion of
forms or strategies.
NOT protected by the attorney-client privilege or work product doctrine since Docstoc is not a law firm and is not providing legal
advice. No Docstoc employee, Handyman, or attorney is authorized to provide you with any advice about what information
(again, which includes forms) to use or how to use or complete it or them.
