Form an LLC in 3 Simple Steps

The LegalZoom 3-step process was developed by attorneys from some of the most prestigious law firms in America. There are no complex instructions to follow and nothing to download or print. Simply answer a few questions and we'll get started on filing your LLC.

Our 3-Step process

Here's how it works:

  1. Complete the LLC Questionnaire
    Complete our simple questionnaire. With LegalZoom, you can choose to form a new LLC or convert an existing partnership or sole proprietorship into an LLC. You can also select provisions to help you guard against personal liability.
  2. Create and File Your LLC Documentation
    Our LegalZip® software creates your LLC documents. Then, we'll file the Articles of Organization (or, in some states the "Certificate of Organization") with the Secretary of State (or other appropriate state agency). We even create a company-specific operating agreement for your LLC.
  3. Final Wrap-Up of Your LLC Order
    When we receive your filed Articles of Organization back from the state, we send them to you along with the rest of your formation documents, as well as easy instructions regarding next steps.
