How to Use a How-To Kit

What’s Included

How-To Kits are step-by-step guides to basic transactions. They are available only online and not in printed form.

Using the "Current to" Date and "What's New"

The Current to date on each How-To Kit reflects its currency. ICLE monitors changes in the existing law on an ongoing basis and adds any changes to the online resources within two weeks of their occurrence. If a major new development requires significant revision of a How-To Kit that will require more than two weeks to implement, that fact will be flagged in the text and the summary of changes.

If a How-To Kit has had changes in the last 12 months, a WHAT’S NEW link will appear at the top of the Kit. Click WHAT’S NEW to see a summary of the changes.
