We must be open M-F during business hours where you or someone trying to notify you could walk into our office and hand deliver a document or legal notification. We have no choice, but to accept legal documents on behalf of our clients. When someone delivers a document to your Wyoming registered agent, it’s legal proof that you have been notified about this document, even if your registered agent fails to get this document to you, you have been legally notified. It’s important to have a Wyoming registered agent that is reliable, has the proper staffing, the longevity and stability to properly handle these notices for you.
Wyoming state statutes (W.S. 17-28-101) define a Wyoming registered agent as an individual or business entity located in Wyoming that is appointed by a company to accept service of process and official legal documents on the company’s behalf.
Wyoming Registered Agent Duties
Essentially, a Wyoming registered agent is a business’ point of contact. Should your business be sued, the registered agent is responsible for accepting notice of the lawsuit and forwarding it the person in charge of your business. A registered agent ensures that a business can be reliably contacted about important matters. That way business owners can hide from important notices, and no one can sue a business without the business knowing about it.

Why Businesses Are Required to Appoint a Registered Agent
All Wyoming businesses registered with the secretary of state (corporations, LLCs, etc.) are required by law to have a registered agent in Wyoming. But why? Basically, once you form a business entity like a Wyoming LLC or corporation, you’ve created a thing separate from yourself that has many of the same rights an individual has, but with none of the abilities to communicate like a person does. A Wyoming registered agent receives official communications and legal documents like service of process (notice of a lawsuit) on behalf of a business. Having a registered agent ensures that the business is able to be contacted and receive communication when the need arises.
