Limited Scope Agreement
Last Updated: October 17, 2019
SimpleCitizen provides access to independent attorneys. When an independent attorney is accessed to review documents and forms as part of the "Attorney Review" services offered by SimpleCitizen, inc., this is done through the Limited Scope Agreement ("Agreement"). This Limited Scope Agreement is between the independent law firm and/or independent attorney, and you (the "Client," "you," or "your") for the review of your immigration document and forms. SimpleCitizen, Inc. is not a party to this Agreement. When you opt in for the "Attorney Review" services via this Agreement, you agree SimpleCitizen, Inc. is not liable for service performed pursuant to this Agreement. A limited scope representation means that the amount of work the attorney performs for you is limited to certain tasks. Limited scope representation is a means to provide access to legal services while making legal help affordable. The remainder of tasks required outside the scope of this Agreement, if any, will be your sole responsibility. You may choose to hire your attorney or another attorney to perform the additional tasks for additional fees. You may review a copy of the Limited Scope Agreement below. You will also be provided a copy of this agreement upon request at any time after purchasing the "Attorney Review".
