Registered Agent In Alabama

Here’s the low-down about registered agent service in Alabama.

What is a registered agent?

A registered agent, otherwise called a statutory agent, is a company located in the state of Alabama who is responsible for receiving legal service of process on your behalf. Your registered agent is required to be present and available during typical business hours.

What qualities should I be looking for when selecting a registered agent?

Practical Knowledge: You want to choose a registered agent who knows what they’re doing, who’s been performing the duties of a registered agent for a few years and has a good reputation.

Reliability: You need to be able to trust your registered agent. You should be able to trust that they will fulfill their duties and be available during normal business hours to accept service of process and other legal paperwork.

Solid Character: Your registered agent must have a reputation for forwarding legal paperwork and service of process in a reliable and timely manner. If they accept legal papers on your behalf and don’t deliver them to you, your business could wind up with a judgment against you in court and not even be aware that your business is party to a lawsuit.

Customer Relations: Just imagine you need to clarify or have a question about some aspect of your business as it relates to the State of Alabama. You don’t want to discuss it with someone reading off a script in a call center in India, you want to talk to a customer service rep who actually knows a thing or two about business registered agent service.

Additional Services: In addition to basic registered agent service (by receiving your legal documents), check to see if your registered agent offers additional services like: Customized documents for your state filings, email reminders for important filing deadlines and due dates, any other tools that will keep your business in good standing with the state.
