Effective March 1, 2014, the Nevada Secretary of State implemented new regulations governing document preparation service providers and the process to become certified in the state. The official definition of a document preparation service provider according to the state is:
“A person who:
For compensation and at the direction of a client, provides assistance to the client in a legal matter, including, without limitation: (1) Preparing or completing any pleading, application or other document for the client; (2) Translating an answer to a question posed in such a document; (3) Securing any supporting document, such as a birth certificate, required in connection with the legal matter; or (4) Submitting a completed document on behalf of the client to a court or administrative agency.”
Among the new regulations for document preparation service providers is a change to the requirements for licensing. The process now requires the posting of a surety bond in the penal sum of $50,000. This bond is to be filed with the Secretary of State and is conditioned to provide protection to clients of document preparation service providers.
