Starting a new business is exciting. You may decide on the entrepreneur route due to a lifelong dream or a recent lay-off at your previous employment leads you decide on starting off on your own. No matter what brought you there, this is a big time and money investment that requires good planning to pay off.
It is likely tempting to use any of the online platforms that claim to produce small business documents at a lower price charged by most attorneys. After all, it appears that all you need to do is sign a few forms, pay a fee, and now, you are in business! However, it can often become more complex than that and you are better off securing experienced legal guidance.

Beyond Forms and Into Strategy
There are many considerations when starting a small business. If you are going on this venture with another individual, you will need to consider division of labor and profits. That could require a partnership agreement. It is also likely that your particular industry is vulnerable to liability so a limited liability company or corporation may suit your needs better.
Basically, while an online form producer will get you started, you will not receive the legal advice necessary to assure you have the best possible beginning to this chapter of your life.
