In this article, we’ll explain how to complete and submit this paperwork.

If you're using a registered agent service, they'll take care of everything.

Whether you’re changing registered agent services, your agent has resigned, or you want to be your own Arizona registered agent, you can follow the steps below to make the change.

Changing Your Registered Agent When Using a Professional Service

If you are hiring a new service, they will file the necessary paperwork for you. 

The benefits of using a professional service are: 

  • Less Risk: A professional service will ensure that you don’t miss important legal documents or notifications (e.g., service of process, etc.).
  • More Flexibility: A service will always be present to receive service of process during normal business hours so that you don’t have to be.
  • Privacy: If you act as your own agent, your name and address will become public record. Using a service will help keep your information private. You’ll also avoid receiving lawsuit-related documents in front of your clients.
  • Peace of mind: Using a service allows you to focus on running and growing your business.
