The Website was easy to use.
I live in Houston Texas and mother recently passed away in California and I need affidavit of joint tenant forms.
I was provided all the forms necessary to complete the documents.
I had been a legal secretary in California about 20 years ago and just need the current forms and received them all very quickly.
