Application to Serve the California Secretary of State

SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA, COUNTY OF SONOMA INFORMATION SHEET TO SERVE AN OUT-OF-STATE BUSINESS How to serve a business located and incorporated in another state that: does not have an agent for service listed with the Secretary of State, has an agent that has resigned, but has not been replaced, or has an agent that cannot be found with reasonable diligence. Every corporation doing business in California is required to have an agent within the state to accept service of process. Some corporations fail to meet this requirement and the only way to effect service is to serve the Secretary of State in California. (Corp. Code 2111) The procedure is as follows: 1. Fill out the "APPLICATION TO SERVE THE SECRETARY OF STATE" and the "ORDER TO SERVE THE SECRETARY OF STATE" and submit them to the clerk along with the ex parte motion fee (see fee schedule at http://www.sonomasuperiorcourt.com or check with the clerk for current fees). 2. Once the "ORDER" is signed, you must send it and the other paper(s) to be served to the Sacramento County Sheriff (or private process server) to be personally served upon the "California Secretary of State." The Sheriff will charge a fee to perform the service. They charge to serve each document (e.g., Order is one document and each other paper to be served is another). Check with the Sacramento County Sheriff for current fees. 3. Write a short letter instructing the Sheriff to serve the "ORDER" and the other paper(s) on the Secretary of State. 4. In addition to sending all of the above, send a check payable to the California Secretary of State. There is a service fee and a fee to return a copy of the proof of service. Call the Secretary of State at (916) 657-5448 for the amount of their fee, Gov. Code 12197. 5. Once the California Secretary of State is served, they will serve the corporation in the state where the corporation is located. 6. The Secretary of State in the other state notifies the corporation that they have been served. 7. Be sure to return all proofs of service to the court promptly. NOTE: If you obtain a judgment against an out-of-state corporation who does not have assets in California, you cannot enforce your judgment in California. You will need to register your judgment in the state where the out-of-state corporation has funds and collect your judgment through that state. This can be expensive and time consuming.
