Who Can Be a Registered Agent for an LLC?

An LLC's registered agent can either be an individual or a commercial registered agent service. In either case, your registered agent must be a Delaware resident if you’re forming a Delaware LLC. Keep in mind that the registered agent's address is a matter of public record. This address is where legal documents and official correspondence will be sent. You can learn more about our Registered Agent costs before making your decision.


Can I Be My Own Registered Agent for My LLC?

Yes! A member or a manager of the LLC can act as the registered agent, provided they meet the residency and availability requirements for the state. Before deciding to serve as your own Delaware Registered Agent, don’t forget that a registered agent’s information is made available on the public record. If you’d prefer your privacy, hiring a registered agent may be better for you.
