Nolo will perform a name availability search before submitting your formation documents to the state. We ask that you provide two to three name choices for your corporation, in order of preference, and we will use the first one available. Please do a preliminary name search of your own on the website of your state’s corporate filing office—so you can take the time to think about another name if your first choice is taken.

Nolo will prepare your articles of incorporation (in some states, called a certificate of incorporation or certificate of formation) and send the document to the Secretary of State (or other corporate filing office). Your corporation will be formed on the date that the filing office receives the document.

With Nolo's priority rush filing, your articles of incorporation or certificate of formation will be submitted to your state corporate filing office within one business day. You'll generally receive your final corporate documents two to three business days later (but some state filing offices take several business days). Without priority rush filing, it will generally take two to three weeks to receive your corporate documents.
