We no longer have to line up outside a lawyer’s office whenever we need a lease or vendor agreement, bill of sale, or another contract. Now, technology can effectively be used in place of professionals for standard and basic tasks and solutions, such as creating contracts and agreements.

But don’t rush to upload your personal data to ChatGPT or other AI-powered tools. Consider the security — ChatGPT is not yet known for having strong security policies. Additionally, legal regulations differ from state to state, and ChatGPT may not always be able to create the exact legal contract text a person needs. Why use something like ChatGPT when there are already contract builders and agreement generators developed by lawyers from all corners of the United States?

In this guide, we are discussing Lawrina Templates — what it is, how to use legal forms, how to stay safe when sharing personal data with document builders, how to create a contract using a template, and (most importantly) whether using a document generator can really replace visiting a lawyer.

What Is Lawrina Templates?

Lawrina Templates is a collection of 100+ legal document templates for all aspects of life, including business areas, the real estate industry, and personal matters. All templates are created by U.S. lawyers, analyzed to the last word, and fully binding and legitimate in all states. 

At Lawrina, we also take into account that different states may require additional data in certain documents, so the users can search for state law in the appropriate section in template descriptions while filling in the legal template.

Lawrina’s legal team constantly monitors updates to laws and updates templates as needed. Additionally, we are constantly adding new free and paid templates. If you can’t find the template you need on our website, you can contact us, as our lawyers may be preparing the text of that contract right now.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where is my legal template saved?

Your legal template is saved in your account space on Lawrina. You can access it anytime by logging in to your account.

How do I fill out legal templates?

Our users take two paths when they need to fill out legal forms:

  1. The user can choose a template and read all the information we provide. This is a comprehensive guide to filling out the legal form, which lists all the essential terms and requirements, sheds light on state regulations regarding the document, etc.

    After reading all the information, the user will better understand all details of the document being created. People who regularly need the same type of contract will want to understand its structure. People who have never filled out legal templates generally require more detailed instructions.
     
  2. The user can skip reading all the information about the template and immediately switch to the “Create” mode. Prompts and questions from the system will give the user a clearer understanding of what to include in the document and why. If there are any questions, the user can open a more comprehensive prompt on a specific question to find the answers. This method is popular among people who have already dealt with similar documents.

 

Overall, no matter which process of filling out a legal template you choose, the system will guide you in an easy-to-understand way through all the necessary milestones on the way to a ready document.

How do I use a legal form, and what do I do with a legal template after I fill it in?

Completed templates are automatically saved in your account so that you can preview, edit, or delete them anytime. For example, if you need to correct something or create a new document because the old one is irrelevant, you can modify the data in the template and confidently print the updated agreement. Log in to your account and select the desired option to work with an already prepared document. You can download the legal document you created by selecting “Get the document.” 

How to get the legal documents I created?

Managing the ready templates is straightforward. Once you have created and checked your document and want to download it, follow these four steps:

  1. Click “Get the document”;
  2. Choose your preferred purchase option;
  3. Process your payment; and
  4. Download in one click.

 

That’s it! You now have your document and can confidently use it for your needs.

Why is it easy to use automated legal templates by Lawrina?

When you use legal templates by Lawrina, 80 percent of the work is already done for you. We have gathered lawyers from specific practice areas who have prepared and collected templates for each state in the U.S. 

 

We have verified the accuracy of these documents, created a detailed guide for them, and provided quick tips to help users quickly and correctly fill in all the details. We have uploaded the template and created your account where your documents will be stored so you can always return to them. We also regularly track all changes in legislation in all states so that any new amendment will immediately be reflected in our templates.

 

Therefore, all you have to do is follow the prompts and fill in the legal template with all the details. Everything else has already been done for you.

Who are legal templates designed for?

From business people to parents, photographers to vendors — everyone can find the template they need. Considering that we are regularly expanding the number of templates and do not plan to stop, these templates are suitable for everyone.

 

So, if you do not want to hire a lawyer and spend time and money on legal services, simply use the document builder developed by lawyers to add your details and create a perfect document for your legal needs.
