"Who is the registered agent for service of process for the California Department of Corporations?" Unlike with a private corporation, in this context there is no "registered agent" per se. Rather, the law provides for service of process as outlined in California Code of Civil Procedure § 416.50: "(a) A summons may be served on a public entity by delivering a copy of the summons and of the complaint to the clerk, secretary, president, presiding officer, or other head of its governing body. (b) As used in this section, "public entity" includes the state and any office, department, division, bureau, board, commission, or agency of the state, the Regents of the University of California, a county, city, district, public authority, public agency, and any other political subdivision or public corporation in this state." In this instance, the specific answer is: Preston DuFauchard, Commissioner for the California Department of Corporations,XXXXX Suite 200, Sacramento, CaliforniaNNN-NN-NNNN
