HOW TO HIRE A PROCESS SERVER TO SERVE COURT PROCESS, A SUBPOENA, DEMAND OR NOTIFICATION TO A REGISTERED AGENT IN CARE OF A CORPORATE ENTITY. Why is an In-State Registered Agent Required? All fifty states in America like their citizens to be able to track down representatives of companies from other states. They do not like the idea of an entity that is hard to reach simply because its office is across the border, especially if that entity does business within the state. States want to be sure that their regulators and the legal system do not have too hard a time finding a local stand-in for a company, regardless of where that company makes its home, and they want their own citizens to have relatively easy access to a registered agent. Because of applicable laws and easy access to the offices of each Registered Agent, we are able to serve legal process and deliver time sensitive documents to any Registered Agent in the Nation What is required for service of process?
