A Certified Copy is an official document issued from the Delaware Secretary of State that certifies the authenticity of documents on file with the Delaware Division of Corporations.
The Certified Copy includes the name of the document being certified and the date the document was filed.
It is executed with the Secretary of State's signature and the official state seal. This document is then affixed to the filing that is being certified.
We can help you obtain Certified Copies from the Secretary of State of any document listed below. To request Certified Copies, you can call 800-345-2677, email us or live chat with us now.
There are several reasons you might require a Certified Copy of one or more of your company's documents, such as:
When ordering a Certified Copy, you are ordering the certification of the original document on file with the state. Any changes filed with Delaware after that particular filing would not be reflected in these documents.
For example, if your company filed a name change and then ordered a Certified Copy of the Certificate of Formation, the Certificate of Formation would include the original name, not the updated name. You could then order a Certified Copy of the Certificate of Amendment to show the updated name, if necessary.
A Certified Copy is not the same as a Certificate of Good Standing. A Certificate of Good Standing declares that your company is in good standing with the state as of a specific date, meaning it is in full compliance and has paid its annual Franchise Tax Fee.
