What should I be looking for in a registered agent?
Practical Knowledge: You want to hire a registered agent who is competent at what they’re doing, who’s been performing the duties of a registered agent for many years and has a solid track record.
Trustworthy: You have to be able to trust your registered agent. You should be able to trust that they will live up to their responsibilities and be available during regular business hours to receive legal documents and service of process.
Character: Your registered agent must have a reputation for forwarding legal documents and service of process in a timely and reliable manner. If they accept legal documents for you and fail to deliver them to you, you could end up with a decision against you in court without even knowing your company is involved in a lawsuit.
Consumer Relations: Just imagine you need to clarify or have a question about some aspect of your company as it relates to the State.

Additional Services: Besides basic registered agent service (by accepting your legal paperwork), check to see if your registered agent offers additional services like: Pre-populated paperwork for state filings, reminders for important filing deadlines and due dates, any other tools that will keep your company in compliance with State law.
