Note: Carefully read and follow the Instructions and Comments contained in this document for your customization to suit your specific
circumstances and requirements. You will want to delete the Instructions and Comments from open bracket (“[“) to close bracket (“]”)
after reading and following them. You (or your attorney) may want to make additional modifications to meet your specific needs and the

? Where within this document you see this symbol: ? or an instruction states “Insert any number you choose?,” or something similar, or
there is a blank for the user to complete, please note that although Docstoc believes the information or number may be any that the user
chooses, and that there is no law governing what the information or number should be, you might want to verify this, including by
consulting with your own attorney practicing in your state. Because the law is different from jurisdiction to jurisdiction and the laws are
subject to change, Docstoc cannot guarantee—and disclaims all guarantees—that it is correct for the information or number to be
anything that the user chooses.

The information, forms, instructions, tips, comments, decision tree alternatives and choices, reports, and services in and through Docstoc

purchasers, and subscribers address their own needs. But information, including tips, general forms, instructions, comments, decision
tree alternatives and choices, and reports, no matter how seemingly customized to conform to the laws and regulations applicable to you,
is not the same as legal advice, which may be the specific application of laws and regulations by lawyers licensed to practice law in your
state to the specific circumstances and needs of individuals and entities. Some states, counties, municipalities, and other governmental
divisions, have highly specific laws and regulations, and our information / forms / reports may not take all those specific laws and
regulations into consideration, although we tried to do so.

Docstoc is not a law firm and the employees and contractors (including attorneys, if any) of Docstoc are not acting as your attorneys, and
none of them are a substitute for the advice of your own attorney licensed to practice law in your state. The employees or contractors of
Docstoc, who wrote or modified any form, instructions, tips, comments, decision tree alternatives and choices, and reports, are NOT
providing legal or any other kind of advice and are not creating or entering into an Attorney-Client relationship. Any such form,
instruction, tips, comments, decision tree alternatives and choices, and reports were most likely NOT prepared or reviewed by an
attorney lice
