Hi,

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

Non-profits are required to file a copy of their articles of incorporation with the Secretary of State. Some states put this information on their websites, but not all of them do. Some will charge a fee for a download. You can try googling "Secretary of State Business look-up" with your state's name, or if you can tell me where the company is incorporated, I can find the link for you.

Thank you.

Texas doesn't provide free access to their corporations forms, but you should be able to find what you're looking for on their site.

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.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
