Name Availability

Please be sure to read the Guidelines for Determining Entity Name Availability below before using this section. The name you choose must be clearly distinguishable from the names of all other entities on file in our active records.

This preliminary name search is not statutorily required, is not binding upon the Secretary of State, and does not ensure that the name will be available upon filing your documents. The final determination as to availability of the name will be determined by this office at the time of filing. It is suggested that you do not make any financial expenditures or execute documents utilizing the name based upon a preliminary name availability search.
