Certified Copies from State
A certified copy is a duplicate of an original document that is certified as a true copy by the officer having custody of the original. Keeping the original of your formation documents or any other state-filed document with your company records is important. If the original(s) are ever lost or misplaced, requesting a certified copy from the state of formation or qualification is advisable.
Other types of documents for which requests for certification are frequently received include:
- Certificates of authority (qualification documents); and Dissolutions.
