Frequently asked questions
Ans: A registered agent is someone you designate to accept service of process and official government notices on your behalf. District of Columbia statutes require that all registered business entities have a registered agent in the District. The statutes also require that all registered agents have a physical address in the District.
Ans: The registered agent must make itself available to receive communications and be set up to forward those communications efficiently and quickly to its clients. Its clients are the business entities who engaged it to serve as their registered agent.
Ans: Court documents such as summonses and subpoenas, government notices about annual reports and proposed actions such as revocation and registration are among the documents routinely directed to registered agents.
Ans: The company is required by State (including DC) law to maintain a registered agent who is accessible. If, for example, someone wants to sue the company, and cannot find the registered agent, then that Plaintiff might be able to simply serve the company by either serving the DC Superintendent of Corporations or by putting a notification in a newspaper, which the company may or may not see. After that newspaper publication, a judgment might be entered against the company (even if the company was not aware of the suit!). Thus, it is certainly in the company's best interests to maintain a respectable and available registered agent. Failing to do so could also result in the revocation of the company's "charter" (legal existence) by the State.
