  • To understand them inside & out, forwards & backwards. 
  • To 'teach' our clients what is contained within each document we prepare
  • To complete the forms (typically fill-in-the-blank)
  • Obtain signatures/dates
  • Provide a copy to clients within 48 hours of any documents they sign.

At least this is what is required in NC & SC.
