Conduct a Free Name Check, No Obligations.

To make sure that your choice is available in your selected state, we will conduct a preliminary, non-binding, Name Availability Check with each request, to determine if your desired business name is available for use.

It is important to note that the name you request is not final until your state officials approve. Never rely on a corporate name check until after you have received a copy of your Articles of Incorporation, stamped with the state's approval.

A Name Availability Check is included at no additional charge when you incorporate or form your LLC with us.

  1. Fill out and submit the Name Availability Check order form on our website.
  2. You will find requests for standard contact, billing, and authorization information, plus specific information requests concerning your copyright.
  3. We will contact the Secretary of State, as necessary, to ensure availability of your business name.
  4. We will notify you of the availability of your business name.

A name availability check is NOT required before forming your corporation or Limited Liability Company (LLC). However, it may be wise to reserve a corporate or LLC name if you are not yet ready to form the entity at this time or have some reason for delaying its formation.

Sometimes your business name may be already be in use by another company. In such instances, you may consider selecting a new corporate or LLC name that does not conflict with an existing business name in the jurisdiction where you are incorporating.

The only way to change the legal name of a state-level entity such as a corporation or LLC is to file an amendment to the Articles of Incorporation/Organization.
