Using courier delivery or Class C Expedited filing service may drastically reduce processing times when documents need to be returned on a timeline faster than First Class Mail.
Filing via First Class Mail
Most of the year, filing times for formation documents filed via First Class Mail are returned as certified or rejected in about four weeks. At the busiest times of the year, for example, between December 17 through the end of February every year, filing times via First Class Mail may be five or six weeks. At less busy times of the year, like July, August, and November, filing times via First Class Mail may be as short as three weeks. While First Class Mail is the least expensive option, it is also the slowest option. In addition, if filed documents are rejected for any reason, rejected documents will not be returned for several weeks and then must be refiled, which restarts the wait for the return of certified or rejected documents.
