Dependability: You have to be able to depend on your registered agent. You should be able to trust that they will fulfill their duties and be accessible during typical business hours to receive service of process and other legal paperwork.
Solid Reputation: Your New Mexico registered agent must have be known for delivering service of process and legal paperwork in a timely and reliable manner. If they receive legal papers on your behalf and don’t deliver them to you, you could end up with a judgment against you in court and not even know that your company is involved in a lawsuit.
Consumer Relations: Just imagine you need to clarify or have a question about some aspect of your business as it relates to the State of New Mexico. You don’t want to talk to a person reading off a script in a call center in some foreign country, you want to talk to a consumer service rep who actually knows a thing or two about commercial registered agent service in New Mexico.
