What is a Georgia registered agent?
A Georgia registered agent can be either an organization qualified by the GA Secretary of State or a person. You furnish the registered agent name and address on your corporate paperwork with the state. The Georgia registered agent is responsible for receiving registration renewal notices and legal notices on your behalf, and forwarding them to your organization. Georgia registered agents must have a physical location in Georgia and be present at that address during normal business hours. Typically a deputy or process server will deliver the legal service of process to the Georgia resident agent's address. A party to a lawsuit may occasionally deliver the court papers by certified mail to the Georgia registered agent at the registered office address, and that will be sufficient legal proof that you have been notified, regardless of whether or not your registered agent delivers it to your company.
The Georgia registered agent's obligation is to be available at the address listed as the GA registered office address during normal business hours. All official documents from the state will be sent to the Georgia resident agent's address.
