Online Business Filing

The Probate Office has added online filing of certain corporate documents. Customers can now file Domestic (for profit) corporations as well as forming and dissolving Domestic Limited Liability Companies (LLC’s). The registered agent’s address determines what county the filing should occur. Currently, this service is only available for mailing addresses in cities, or towns, wholly within Tuscaloosa County. For example, addresses in the city of Moundville do not have access to this service as it falls in Hale and Tuscaloosa County.
