Maine Registered Agent
A local Maine registered agent is required when forming a business in Maine.
What is a Maine registered agent?
A Maine registered agent can be either another business or an individual that you list on your corporate paperwork with the state. The Maine registered agent is responsible for accepting legal documents on your behalf. Maine registered agents must have a real physical location in Maine and be present at that address during normal business hours. Generally, a deputy or process server will deliver court papers to the Maine resident agent’s address. Also, legal notices can be delivered by certified mail to the Maine registered agent at the registered office address, and that will be adequate legal proof that you have been served, regardless of whether or not your registered agent delivers the legal notice to your company.
The Maine registered agent’s responsibility is to be available at the address listed as the ME registered office address during regular business hours. All documents from the state will be sent to the Maine resident agent’s address.
