What is a Texas Registered Agent?
A Texas registered agent is appointed by a business to accept service of process and legal correspondence on behalf of the company. It is legally required by state law. All registered agents in Texas must have a physical address where certified mail can be delivered during regular business hours.

We know that you have an endless number of choices when it comes to designating a Texas registered agent service. That’s why at Lone Star Registered Agent, we aim to give you everything you need and none of the things you don’t.
Unlike other services, we don’t try to upsell you with add-on products you don’t need. We don’t lure you in with one low price only to jack it up later next year.
Instead, we offer two promises: one of the lowest prices in the industry and the best customer service you can find.
Legal Duties of a Texas Registered Agent
Every Texas registered agent is required by law to fulfill certain duties for their clients.
As your agent, we must:
- Maintain a physical location within the state where certified mail can be accepted
- Keep regular business hours
- Accept service of process and official mail on your behalf
- Notify you whenever we accept documents on your behalf
- Forward documents to you in a timely manner
Can a Business Be Its Own Registered Agent?
No. Section 5.201(b) of the Texas Business Organizations Code forbids a company from acting as its own registered agent.
How Do You Notify Me?
As your Texas registered agent, we accept service of process (notice of a lawsuit against your business), legal correspondence, official state notifications, and other important business mail on your behalf. Whenever we accept these documents, they are immediately opened and scanned into your secure digital client account right here at our local Austin office.
Unlike major national agent services, our office is entirely local, as is our filing staff.
Once the documents are uploaded into your account, we send a notification to you the same day. We work with all our clients to determine how they would like to be notified, as well as how often. Want us to send just one notice? We can do that. Want us to send you notices every day until you finally ask us to stop? We can do that too.
We can also send notices to your spouse, your lawyer, your business partner, or anyone else you want to be contacted.
What If I’m Unhappy With Your Service?
We always strive to exceed the expectations of our customers, but if we have let you down you may cancel anytime. We do not charge cancellation fees because we do not believe anyone should be paying for services they don’t want or need.
How Do I Change a Texas Registered Agent?
You can change your Texas registered agent anytime by filing a Statement of Change of Registered Office/Agent form with the Texas Secretary of State’s office. There is a $15 filing fee. Processing takes three to five business days but can be expedited for $25.
If you are changing agents to us, a Statement of Change can be found in your online account after you sign up for service. It is ready for you to file, or we can file it on your behalf.
Looking to Form a Business?

We form Texas LLCs and Texas corporations every day. Included in our formation package, you get one year of registered agent service, custom business documents, and annual compliance reminders.
