Purchasing a form from one of our partners means you'll be subject to their website's terms of use. If you obtain a form via our Website or Application, it will be governed by these Terms of Use.

    (a) Exclusive Individual Resolution. You and LegalityLink concur that any disputes or claims arising between us, whether related to these Terms or our Services, are personal and must be resolved solely on an individual basis, not as a class arbitration, class action, or any other collective proceeding. This Arbitration Agreement encompasses “LegalityLink,” “you,” and “us,” including our subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors, successors, and any authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of services or products under these Terms or any prior agreements.

    (b) Arbitration Process. Should there be any unresolved issues, our Customer Care Center aims to resolve them swiftly and to your satisfaction. If disputes remain unresolved informally, Section 6 becomes applicable. This excludes (i) individual claims in small claims court within your billing county or (ii) court actions for injunctive relief concerning intellectual property infringement or misappropriation. Both parties waive the right to a jury trial, agreeing instead to arbitrate disputes under this section. This includes a wide range of disputes related to these Terms, our Services, and other aspects of our relationship.

    (c) Initiating Arbitration. To start the arbitration process, a written notice detailing the dispute must be sent to LegalityLink. Following an unsuccessful 30-day resolution attempt, either party may proceed to arbitration under the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) guidelines. Arbitration will occur in Los Angeles County, CA, unless you choose your residence county as a Consumer. The arbitration rules applied (AAA Consumer or Commercial) depend on your status as a Consumer and the dispute’s value.

    (d) Arbitration Details. The arbitrator has exclusive authority to resolve procedural and substantive issues, including those related to the Arbitration Agreement itself. Arbitration is individual, barring consolidation of multiple parties’ claims.

    (e) Confidentiality in Arbitration. Both parties commit to maintaining the confidentiality of information exchanged during arbitration, seeking protective orders as necessary.

    (f) Arbitration Fees. The responsibility for arbitration fees depends on your status as a Consumer and the dispute’s value, with specific arrangements for covering these costs detailed herein.

    (g) Opting Out of Arbitration. You have the option to opt out of arbitration within 30 days of agreement acceptance by providing written notice to LegalityLink, effectively choosing to resolve disputes as outlined in Section 19, under individual action conditions only.

    (h) Severability and Enforcement. If parts of this Section 6 are found unenforceable, they will be severed, leaving the remainder in effect. Should arbitration be unfeasible, claims must be litigated in civil court, with collective claims stayed pending individual arbitration outcomes.

    Public injunctive relief claims against LegalityLink must be litigated separately in court. The enforcement of arbitration awards falls under the jurisdiction of California state or federal courts, specifically within Los Angeles County.
