Delaware Registered Agent

A local Delaware registered agent is required when registering to do business in Delaware.

What is a Delaware registered agent?

A Delaware registered agent can be either another business or an individual that is listed on your corporate paperwork with the state as responsible for accepting legal notices on your behalf. Delaware registered agents must have a real physical location in Delaware and be present at that address during normal business hours. Although most of the time a sheriff or process server will be delivering the notice to the Delaware resident agent’s address, mailing a certified letter to the person or business listed as the Delaware registered agent at the registered office address is legal proof that you have been notified, regardless of whether or not your registered agent forwarded it to you.

The Delaware registered agent’s duty is to be available at the business address listed as the registered office address during normal business hours. Any official mail from the state will be sent to the Delaware resident agent’s address.
