In California those who for compensation, assist members of the public in filing legal papers for individuals who are representing themselves in a legal matter must provide a California legal document assistant bond and be properly registered in each county where they operate. The legal document assistant bond must be written in the amount of $25,000 by a corporate surety licensed in California, and must guarantee compliance with sections 6400, 6402, and 6408 of the Business and Profession Code.  If a legal document assistant does business in more than one county, he or she need not provide a new surety bond for each jurisdiction.  A certified copy of the original bond is sufficient for secondary registrations.
