Change Registered Agent
Upon the formation or qualification of a company, most states require the appointment of a registered agent. Many people rely on attorneys or accountants to select the registered agent without first researching their options. Not all service providers offer the same services, and the cost of these providers can vary greatly. When choosing a registered agent, you should consider the range of services offered, the availability of services in each state, and the overall cost to you. Fortunately, you have options in service providers, and a change of agent may be requested at any time.

Frequently asked questions about registered agents
A registered agent is not a mail forwarding service. While a registered agent does forward all of your legal documents and state correspondence, the registered agent address is not for all of your business mail.
We suggest setting up a P.O. Box for any mail that you do not want delivered to your physical address. Keep in mind, that you may still need to provide your physical address for registered agent service, but that information will not be listed publicly.
A registered agent can either be a designated person or a commercial registered agent service provider. You cannot list your company as your company’s registered agent because most states require the name of the person that is designated to receive state and legal documents on behalf of the company.
A drawback to using an employee of the company is that a registered agent must be available daily during regular business hours to accept legal documents. What happens if that employee is on vacation? You may miss important services of process documents and risk having a default judgment against your company – an action that can include expensive fines.
Commercial registered agent providers are always available to accept documents and will ensure that you don’t miss any of your important documents!
All 50 states, the District of Columbia, and even international jurisdictions require a designated registered agent listed on the incorporation or formation documents of a company.
In nearly all cases, you must list a person or a commercial registered agent provider. A few states will act as your registered agent; however, the Secretary of State will still need to know who at your company to forward your service of process and legal documents on to.
