What is a LDA Bond?

As with any surety bond, the CA Legal Document Assistant Bond is a guarantee that the licensed LDA will comply with the laws as laid out in the California Business and Professions Code § 6400, 6402 & 6408.  If the LDA fails to comply and causes financial harm to their client(s), the surety bond is there to provide financial remuneration through the bond claim process.  The LDA bond must be filed in the county where they prepare and file legal documents.  The bond must be in the name the LDA is applying to become licensed and will run for a term of 2 years as required by the state.  For additional information regarding licensing process or filing requirements, please be sure to check out CALDA, a non profit organization that "promotes growth, development, and recognition of the Legal Document Assistants’ profession as an integral partner in the delivery of legal services."
