Virginia Registered Agent

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

What is a Virginia Registered Agent?

A Virginia registered agent can be either another Virginia business or an individual that you list on your corporate paperwork with the state. The Virginia registered agent is responsible for accepting legal notices on your behalf. Virginia registered agents must have a street address in Virginia and be present at that location during normal business hours. Normally, a deputy or process server will personally deliver court papers to the Virginia resident agent’s address. Occasionally lawsuit paperwork is delivered by certified mail to the Virginia registered agent at the registered office address and that will be suitable legal proof that you have been served, despite whether or not your registered agent actually delivers the legal notice to your company.

The Virginia registered agent’s responsibility is to be available at the address listed as the VA registered office address during regular hours of business. All official mail from the state will be sent to the Virginia resident agent’s address.
