Common questions

Why do I need a registered agent?
In most states, a registered agent must be named in the document forming a corporation or LLC. A registered agent is authorized to receive service of process in the event of a lawsuit and other important documents on behalf of the business.
What are the requirements of being a registered agent?
A registered agent must be an adult or an authorized business available during normal business hours at a street address in the state in which the business is formed or foreign qualified. For privacy and convenience reasons, many businesses choose a third party, such as LegalZoom, to serve as their registered agent.
Can I change the registered agent?
You can change the registered agent of an existing entity. Doing so typically requires a fee and filing with your state. If you want LegalZoom to be your business's registered agent, we will file the required documentation at no additional cost.
