DBA FAQ


How will I know if my business name is already being used? Will LegalZoom perform a name check before filing my DBA form?

Some states do require a name check before filing a DBA. LegalZoom will conduct a name check at no extra charge if your state requires one. We will advise you if your proposed name is currently being used. You may then decide whether you wish to proceed with the filing or try a different name.
