    Affidavit of Publication

    An Affidavit of Publication is a sworn, written statement made in the presence of a notary public or a person who is authorized to administer an oath, attesting that the publication took place on specified days. Affidavits of publication must be filed with the state, along with other information contained in a Certificate of Publication as proof that the entity has met the publication requirements.

    In some states, failure to make a timely publication may cause your business to be suspended.

    Although we, at Vcorp, will automatically inform you if a publication is required, we encourage you to contact our staff and ask whether publication is required in the state you are concerned about. We can be reached at
