    Items damaged or missing in transit

    If your item is damaged or missing in transit, please contact Lawyer’s Aid Service to arrange for a full or partial replacement at no expense to you. We typically respond within two business days. If the item is damaged, you may be required to obtain a return or replacement authorization from us and return the item in order to receive a replacement or refund.

    Returns and refunds

    Our goal is to provide you with excellent service and products. If you ever feel less than 100% satisfied, please contact us and give us the chance to resolve the issue to your complete satisfaction.

    Return or refund a service

    Services involving retrieval or filing of governmental agency documents generally cannot be refunded or returned after the order is placed with the governmental agency since governmental agencies generally do not allow refunds or returns. We will do our best to obtain any refund we can for you from the agency. However, if an error were to be made by Lawyer’s Aid Service, Inc. in filing or retrieving a document, such as mistyping a company name, we will correct the matter at our expense. We are experienced at helping our clients correct their filings and retrievals and will gladly help with that type of project.

    Refund of professional registered agent services

    Registered agent service can be canceled for a full refund up until the registered agent information is filed with the state. After that, you may cancel the service and receive a prorated refund, by 1) giving us written notice, and 2) filing a change of registered agent with the Secretary of State (a service we can help you with). Lawyer’s Aid Service, Inc. provides a refund prorated to the service end date after you complete these steps because until then we are still serving as your registered agent or winding down your account. The service end date is the last day of the month you give us notice and file to change the registered agent.
