Company Not in Good Standing

If the Texas company is not in Good Standing and a Good Standing Certificate cannot be issued by the Division of Corporations we will instead provide a company search extract showing the current company status. Texas companies that are in bad standing long enough risk being dissolved or revoked by the state. We can reinstate your company back into to Good Standing with the Texas Secretary of State.
