A Registered Agent in Alabama is an individual or a business that has been officially approved to receive and forward legal documents, such as service of process, on behalf of an entity or individual. In Alabama, the Registered Agent is authorized to accept service of process, notices and other legal documents on behalf of a business entity.
In Alabama, the Registered Agent must be an individual resident of the state, or a corporation that is legally authorized to conduct business in the state. The Registered Agent must also have a physical address in the state. The Registered Agent must be available during normal business hours to accept mail and, if necessary, to receive service of process.
The Registered Agent can be an individual, such as a business owner, friend, or family member, or a business entity, such as a corporation or LLC. Additionally, there are many specialized Registered Agent services that provide Registered Agent services for a fee.
