How to Write a Legal Notice for a Limited Liability Company Publication Notice

By Calandra Cooper

A public notification, or legal notification, serves as a method of informing members of the community of what's going on in their city or state. As far as business goes, not all states require public notification of intent to establish or end business operations as a limited liability company. Arizona, New York and Nebraska are among the states do. When writing a notice, refer to statutes under the state's limited liability company laws.

Step 1

Go to the state's legislature or secretary of state department website to look up statutes related to limited liability companies to determine if there’s a statutory requirement to file a legal notice when establishing or dissolving a LLC. In general, statutes related to legal notices are listed under titles similar to “Notices: publication: filing,” “Notices; publication: filing” or “Formation of Limited Liability.” Alternatively, ask a clerk if there’s a requirement and ask that they direct you to the appropriate statutes, if applicable.

Step 3

Visit the office of a newspaper(s) meeting the statutory requirements to place the notice for the specified period of time. Pay any required fees.
