Legal Document Assistant Registration

Legal Document Assistant registration is required in each county where services are performed. The registration application is completed and submitted in our main office in downtown Santa Ana. If registering as a corporation or partnership, at least two partners or corporate officers must be present to sign at the time of registration. Only one partner or corporate officer must submit supporting educational documentation. Identification cards issued in the name of the partnership/corporation will not contain a photo. Additionally, employees must individually qualify and file separate individual registrations. Employee identification cards will not be issued.

The registrant must appear in person and meet the following requirements:

  • Possess a valid government issued picture identification (established by a birth certificate, such as a driver’s license or passport).
  • Present a bond in the amount of $25,000 naming the registrant as principal providing the term of the bond, two (2) years, commencement date and expiration date.
  • Supporting educational documentation as required in Business and Profession Code § 6400, 6402 & 6408.

The filing fee is $188 for a single-sided, single-page bond, but may vary. Please add $3 for each additional page of the bond.

Replacement cards are $10 each.
