New Mexico Registered Agent
A local New Mexico registered agent is required when registering to do business in New Mexico.
What is a New Mexico registered agent?
A New Mexico registered agent can be either a domestic corporation or an individual resident of the state. You furnish the registered agent name and address on your corporate paperwork with the state. The NM registered agent is responsible for receiving renewal notices and legal notices on your behalf, and forwarding them to your organization. New Mexico registered agents must have a physical location in New Mexico 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 New Mexico resident agent’s address. A party to a lawsuit can also deliver some court papers by certified mail to the New Mexico registered agent at the registered office address and that will be acceptable legal proof that you have been served, whether your registered agent delivers it to your company or not.
The New Mexico registered agent’s obligation is to be available at the address listed as the NM registered office address during normal business hours. All official documents from the state will be sent to the New Mexico resident agent’s address.
