Important Notice About PDF Printing

For legal purposes, many states require documents of a legal nature to use print in a font of not less than 10 points. These documents have been created with that requirement in mind. However, Adobe Acrobat may scale your document down to it's own margins, thereby reducing the print to a size that may render the legality of this document void.

For your legal protection take a moment as you print this document to ensure that printer scaling is turned off. Follow these steps if you are unsure:
  1. Once the document opens in Acrobat, press 'File' > 'Print'.
  2. The printer dialog box will appear.
  3. Ensure that the 'Page Scaling' option is set to 'None'.
  4. Ensure that the box for 'auto-rotate and center pages' is checked.
  5. Press the 'Print' button.
