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. If you were to pick a random dude to be your registered agent, perhaps you might have some concern about a service of process. 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.
You shouldn’t be afraid of a service of process, especially if you have taken steps to ensure the asset protection of your important business assets.
There is a relatively new legal entity called the Series LLC that is being promoted heavily by States attempting to profit off of this “money-saving-device” which effectively groups several LLC’s into one LLC.
You might think that you might be saving money by using a “Series LLC” but in all likelihood you could end up paying considerably more in the event of a lawsuit – plus – at $600-800 per year, they are hardly cheap.
Lots of people think that they are saving money by starting a series LLC in a state like California.
You may be saving money until your financial safety net is ripped apart by a lawsuit, and all of the assets held in the series LLC are available for predatory creditors to steal away from you.
California has some of the worst business laws surrounding LLC’s – first and foremost, you should never have a California LLC. This is because California law makes it very easy for creditors to shut down your business in the event of a lawsuit.
In other, pro business states, the sole remedy is a charging order. This means that the creditors will have to wait until profits are distributed before they can stake a claim to your company.
Without confusing the reader with complicated legal jargon, In California, your business can easily be dismantled in the event of a lawsuit. Furthermore, you may lose all of your personal assets as well – if the corporate veil is pierced – which may be relatively easy with a series LLC.
Series LLC’s are unproven in the courts of the United States, and you certainly don’t want to be the one to establish the new caselaw.
Courts rely on precedent caselaw to make judgements concerning a specific case, and therefore, you want to establish your LLC in a state with
1. Pro-business laws where the sole remedy is a charging order
2. Established, precedent caselaw
The best States for U.S. incorporation are Wyoming, Delaware and Nevada, and these States also allow you to keep your name off of the state register when you sign up the LLC.
The Series LLC is anything but proven! Does anyone even know if there will be inside protection from a series LLC? NO! And you certainly don’t want to be the first to find out.
