Below are some useful links and service instructions for some common places for service in Tallahassee. If you have any questions or need help please contact our office and one of our helpful staff members will assist you.

Florida Department of State (Secretary of State Division of Corporations-SOS):

When serving the Secretary of State Division of Corporations (2661 Executive Center Circle, Tallahassee, FL 32301) there are various requirements in order to perfect good service. Two of the most important things are that you be sure you have the statute by which you are serving the agency under listed clearly on the summons or cover letter. Secondly, be sure you also include a check for $8.75 made payable to Florida Secretary of State (this fee is required and is separate from our fees, be sure you do not make this check payable to Vause’s Process Service or include it with pre-payment).

Florida Chief Financial Officer (CFO):

When serving the Florida Chief Financial Officer (200 E. Gaines Street, Tallahassee FL 32399) there are various requirements in order to perfect good service. Two of the most important things are that the name matches exactly as listed with the Secretary of State Division of Corporations (a link is listed below so that you may verify this information). If the name is wrong in any way the CFO’s office reserves the right to refuse service and your office will have to amend your service titling and re-serve the documents once corrected. The CFO provides a letter printout when errors like this occur and will be provided back to your office if this happens. Secondly, be sure you also include a check for $15.00 made payable to The Chief Financial Officer (this fee is required and is separate from our fees, be sure you do not make this check payable to Vause’s Process Service or include it with pre-payment).
