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

The information, forms, instructions, tips, comments, decision tree alternatives and choices, reports, and services in and through Docstoc

purchasers, and subscribers address their own needs. But information, including tips, general forms, instructions, comments, decision

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 contractors (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 contractors 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 contractors 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.
