What Exactly Do You Do As My Montana Registered Agent?
Montana is one of the few states that actually sets out registered agent duties in their legal code. According to 35-7-114 of the Montana Model Registered Agents Act, the duties of a registered agent are:
- To forward to clients any process, notice or demand that is served on the agent
- To provide notices to clients whenever notices are sent to the agent

Is It Necessary to Hire a Registered Agent? Can I Act As My Own Registered Agent?
Montana state law prohibits LLCs and Corporations from acting as their own registered agents. You must appoint either an individual who meets the state requirements or an entity in good standing with the Secretary of State.
