Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you.Check with county clerk here to see if anyone has that fictitious name in your county(dba).

Here is a sample for San Diego.

https://arcc.sdcounty.ca.gov/pages/fbn-info.aspx

If not one has the name you can then register it in your county as Fictitious business name(dba).

I appreciate the chance to help you today.Please let me know if you have more follow up.Thanks again.

Read this to see if you need to register it or not.

The Definition of Fictitious Business Name is:

A business name that DOES NOT include the surname of the individual owner, AND EACH of the partners or the nature of the business is not clearly evident by the name.

For example:

Doing business under a name like:

Eisenberg & Yandall Associates
or
Eisenberg & Yandall Sons

would require a Fictitious Business Name be registered, even though the surname of the owner is stated, the words following the surname suggest other owners that are not specifically named.

HOWEVER, doing business under a name like:

Teresa Fiske Plumbing

would NOT require a Fictitious Business Name be registered, because the owner (Teresa Fiske) is conducting business under her legal name.

In the case of a corporation, a Fictitious Business Name is ***** ***** OTHER than the EXACT corporate name as stated in the articles of incorporation.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
