    STANDING ORDER REGARDING CENTURION DEFENDANTS.....LEARN MORE


  • November 01, 2022 10:24 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

    Delaware Secretary of State will be closed two days next week.  On Tuesday, November 8th, 2022, they’ll close for Election Day and on Friday, November 11th, 2022, they’ll close in observance of Veterans Day.  CT Wilmington will be open as normal (8:00am – 12:00am ET on Tuesday and 8:00am – 10:30pm ET on Friday). 

    Two state closures in one week is not a common occurrence.  We expect that this will create delays in processing filings all week as they work to catch up from these closures. 

    Key Points to Know:

     For the closure on Tuesday, November 8th, 2022 (Election Day):

    Corporate

      1. CT Wilmington must have the document in hand on Monday, November 7th, with instructions to obtain a filing date of November 8th, 2022.
      2. The State of Delaware will process the document the following business day (Wednesday, November 9th, 2022) and provide evidence prior to the close of business.
      3. The State of Delaware will charge the Global Filing Service ($2,500.00) expedite fee in addition to all customary disbursements for this transaction.
    2. November 8th, 2022 can be used as a future effective date.

    2. Good Standings, Cert Res, Certified Copies, and Plain Copies are available as usual.
    3. We will have the ability to reserve names, pay franchise tax, and obtain blank annual reports.
