In addition to certain guarantees provided by law, LegalZoom guarantees your satisfaction with our services and support. Because our company was created by experienced attorneys, we strive to be the best legal document service on the web. If you are not satisfied with our services, please contact us immediately and we will correct the situation, provide a refund or offer credit that can be used for future LegalZoom orders.
LegalZoom Satisfaction Guarantee Details:
If you're not satisfied, simply call us toll-free at (800) 773-0888 during our normal business hours. All requests made under this guarantee must be made within 60 days of purchase. We will process your request within 5 business days after we've received all of the documents and materials sent to you. Unfortunately, we can't refund or credit any money paid to government entities, such as filing fees or taxes, or to other third parties with a role in processing your order. We also cannot refund any money paid by you directly to third parties, such as payments made by you directly to attorneys affiliated with our legal plans or attorney-assisted products.
If you want to exchange the product you ordered for a different one, you must request this exchange and complete your replacement order within 60 days of purchase. The purchase price of the original item, less any money paid to government entities, such as filing fees or taxes, or to other third parties with a role in processing your order, will be credited to your LegalZoom account. Any payments made directly by you to attorneys affiliated with our legal plans or attorney-assisted products are not eligible for exchange or credit. Any price difference between the original order and the replacement order or, if a replacement order is not completed within 60 days of purchase, the full original purchase price (in each case less any money paid to government entities or other third parties) will be credited to the original form of payment. If you paid for your original order by check, LegalZoom will mail a check for the applicable amount to your billing address.
Please note that we cannot guarantee the results or outcome of your particular procedure. For instance, the government may reject a trademark application for legal reasons beyond the scope of LegalZoom's service. In some cases, a government backlog can lead to long delays before your process is complete. Similarly, LegalZoom does not guarantee the results or outcomes of the services rendered by our legal plan attorneys or attorney-assisted products. Problems like these are beyond our control and are not covered by this guarantee.
Since we're dedicating time and effort to your legal document preparation, our guarantee only covers satisfaction issues caused by LegalZoom - not changes to your situation or your state of mind.

For the ever-rising numbers of women who are working hard and making money, planning for family and future is more complicated than ever before. Women are under even more pressure to build a financial identity that can withstand both the demands of a tough economy and also endure the division of a marriage.
If you have business loans and were to pass away before they were paid off, could your family just sell your business to cover debts and still have enough to secure them financially? Probably not. When business owners die, covering debts is one thing, paying hefty estate taxes is a whole new ballgame. The estate has to cover both. When a family is forced to sell a business quickly, they may have to sell it at a discount. The value of the business may be miscalculated without your expertise. Your retirement fund, established to protect your family's future, may have to be liquidated to cover these taxes, which are due in a relatively short time period.
There have been rumors circulating ever since Bush first took office that the Estate Tax was headed for extinction. This past election year, in fact, both John Kerry and George W. Bush made the Estate Tax a huge topic of debate. Yet, for many it still unclear what changes if any have taken place. The truth is, the Estate Tax is alive and well but slowly on its way out (until 2011, that is).
Some of the hardest decisions a family can make are how to handle money, property and other family investments. An answer to these difficult questions, especially for families with considerable real estate holdings, is establishing a Family Limited Partnership (FLP).

FLPs provide both protection from creditors and flexibility not found in other trusts, as it can be amended or changed.02
