Alabama Registered Agent

A local Alabama registered agent is required when forming a business in Alabama.

What is an Alabama registered agent?

An Alabama registered agent can be either a business or a person that you list on your corporate paperwork with the state. The Alabama registered agent is responsible for accepting legal notices on your behalf. Alabama registered agents must have a real physical location in Alabama and be present at that address during normal business hours. Typically, a sheriff’s deputy or process server will deliver court papers to the Alabama resident agent’s address. Occasionally lawsuit paperwork is delivered by certified mail to the Alabama registered agent at the registered office address and that will be legal proof that you have been served, regardless of whether or not your registered agent delivers the legal notice to your company.

The Alabama registered agent’s duty is to be available at the address listed as the AL registered office address during regular business hours. All important mail from the state will be sent to the Alabama resident agent’s address.
