Please note, pursuant to law, the A.C.C. is only authorized to accept Service of Process on behalf of Corporations who have failed to appoint or maintain a statutory agent. The A.C.C. is not authorized to accept Service of Process on behalf of LLCs or PLLCs.
To serve a Corporation through the A.C.C., you must deliver to the Corporations Division Records Section, by mail or in person, the following:
- 2 copies of the document or documents being served;
- A check for $25.00 (MOD account holders may charge to the account); and
- A written statement, affidavit, or declaration, certifying under the penalty of perjury that, upon the signer's information, knowledge, and belief, the entity has either failed to appoint a statutory agent or failed to maintain a statutory agent at
the statutory agent address shown on the records of the A.C.C. A form is available here, or you can use your own form.
Read the Notice to Process Servers for more information.
The Records Section is located at 1300 W. Washington St., Phoenix, AZ, 85007.
Pursuant to its statutory obligation, the A.C.C. will mail a copy of the documents being served to the entity via regular U.S. Mail, and a Certificate of Mailing will be prepared by staff. The A.C.C. Certificate of Mailing, along with the other copy of
the documents being served, is sent for microfilming into the entity's record. An uncertified (plain) or certified copy of the A.C.C. Certificate may be obtained by paying the applicable copying/certification fees as listed on the Records Request Form. IMPORTANT: By receiving service, the A.C.C does not represent or guarantee that the service is legally valid. The legal validity of service of process in connection with
a lawsuit or for legal purposes is determined by the court, not by the A.C.C.
