Davenport Publishing as a non-profit public service lets people, groups, and libraries get some easy to use books with ready-to-use legal forms, all written by attorneys. Currently in the books all forms have been finalized however main text in some books is still being improved. To allow free copying and use all people and groups are given a “Creative Commons License”, which books explain.
The focus of books is Estate Planning which is doing legal documents (including a Will) to control health care, property, money, children, funeral, and more if later a person is absent, sick, or dead. Each state has its own book since laws and forms vary by state. Estate Planning is often not worth spending lots of money and effort on, and using legal forms for this is common.
Books received by libraries are FREE donations, no payment or other action is needed.
A normal publisher is NOT being used since books are mostly government or semi-public forms it would be improper to seek profit from, and since books will need quick updates each few years (future books will be marked “2026 Edition” and “2030 edition” to show these future updates).
