California Legal Document Assistant Bond - LDA Bond

Legal Document Assistant surety bonds are required by independent paralegals in California who prepare legal documents for others. LDA bonds are two-year, $25,000 surety bonds that are required for a California LDA to be registered as an LDA. The CA legal document assistant surety bond is filed in the county where the LDA will be preparing and/or filing legal documents. Check with the California Secretary of State or California Business and Professions Code Section 6400 for the law on the legal document assistant surety bond requirements.   

CALDA, California Association of Legal Document Assistants, is a non-profit organization that helps to organize, educate and network LDA’s in California. Their website www.calda.org is a wealth of information for both legal document assistants and Californians who are interested in the services they offer. The owner/broker of  Ameribonds Surety has been an LDA and member of CALDA since 1998.
