During the 2013 Nevada Legislature, a new statute NRS Chapter 240A governing the registration and conduct of persons who provide document preparation services was enacted. See also approved regulations.
Effective March 1, 2014, a person who, for compensation and under the direction of a client, provides assistance in certain legal matters is required to be registered with the Secretary of State as a document preparation service. The law provides consumers protections and remedies for violations of conduct by a document preparation service. Please note, a person acting as a document preparation service cannot provide legal advice unless he or she is a licensed attorney in the State of Nevada.
