Statement of Change of Registered Agent and/or Office Not For Profit Corporation


The Statement of Change of Registered Agent and /or office is one of the easier forms to file with the Secretary of State. However there are certain situations where the State will not accept a change in agent.

If your company is not in good standing in Illinois, the State will not accept any filings.  And if you do not renew your registered agent’s representation, the agent themselves can resign as your agent by filing a Notice of Resignation as Agent with the State of Illinois. In this case, the company would be required, by statute, to appoint another registered agent.  Entitles that do not comply with this requirement will be administratively dissolved by the Secretary of State.
