What is a service of process?
A service of process is a lawsuit filed against a company. Every state has enacted laws that there must exist a registered agent to receive service of process upon a legal entity. Much as a person can be served papers, a corporation can be served papers. Because you are afforded a corporate distinction as long as you maintain a corporate veil, your company is operating as a separate legal entity.
In order for this legal entity to receive a service of process, there must be a registered agent to accept the service of process on the company’s behalf. In reality, a service of process is fairly rare, but if and when they do occur, we handle the claim quickly and get you the help we need. Not only will you receive automatic updates to your email and up to 5 additional emails, you’ll be able to immediately view the service of process on our secure database. Before you respond to the service of process, understand that Registered Agent worldwide has direct lines to lawyers and accounts who can help you respond in the appropriate fashion, no matter what the service of process may be.
Receiving a service of process isn’t something you need to worry about, especially when you have a professional registered agent.

However, at Registered Agent worldwide- the only internationally recognized Registered Agent service with offices in 50 states and 31 countries worldwide, your service of process will be handled quickly and professionally, allowing you to immediately get the help you need to respond to the service of process.
