Obtaining Certified Copy of Articles
There are several situations when a company may need a certified copy of its formation documents. For example, some banks require a certified copy of Articles of Incorporation or Organization to open a business account. Likewise, some states want to see these certified documents (including all other filings such as amendments etc.) before allowing a company to do business in that state as a "foreign entity" (process called foreign qualification).
Any company registered in Washington can order certified copies of its official formation documents from the Washington Secretary of State. Processing time is typically 2 business weeks, plus mailing time. Expedited service is offered by the state with processing time of 2-3 business days plus mailing time.
