Do you have to have a Delaware Registered Agent?
Many states require a registered agent in the state where an entity is established. Delaware is one of the states that requires a registered agent.
If you are based in Delaware, you may choose to act as your own registered agent. If you are not, you must appoint a registered agent in Delaware.
Why You Might Change Your Registered Agent
The most common reason that businesses change their registered agent is because they are unhappy with the service their current agent is providing.
You will also need to change to a new registered agent if the person or office appointed as agent closes their office or moves to a non-Delaware address. If you were a Delaware resident and had been acting as your own registered agent, you're required to appoint a new registered agent if you move out of state.
