How To Incorporate a Business in Texas
My incorporation service provides you with everything you need to form a corporation, for a fixed price. Just click on the button below and complete an online Questionnaire. I will use the information you provide to prepare your documents, and also provide legal advice if you need it. Once you are ready, you can save your information in your personal MyLegalAffairs web space, register as a client, and pay the fixed fee (required Texas state filing fees will be paid separately).
Legal advice will be provided by telephone, email or webcam (Skype), if you have web cam capability. If you prefer, you can also arrange for a in-person meeting if you are in the vicinity of The Woodlands or Magnolia, Texas.

- Shareholders Agreement (Legal Advice Included) Where two or more people wish to carry on a business with as a corporation, a shareholders agreement should be used. The agreement sets out the duties and responsibilities of the shareholders. The shareholders may be either all individuals or all companies or a combination of both individuals and companies.
- Buy and Sell Agreement (Legal Advice Included) Almost every business with more than one owner should have a buy-sell agreement. A buy-sell agreement is a binding contract – between you and your co-owners – that controls when an owner can sell his interest, who can buy an owner’s interest and what price will be paid for that interest. Usually a buy-sell agreement also gives the company and its owners an opportunity to buy out an owner who has stopped working for the company or has died. By so doing it eliminates the possibility that active owners will be forced to share profits with an inactive owner or an unsuitable new owner.
- Amendment to Articles of Incorporation (Texas) (Legal Advice Included) This document is used to amend an Articles of Incorporation. It is filed with the State of Texas and approved by the shareholders of the corporation and its Board of Directors.
- Amendment to By-Laws (Legal Advice Included) The form is used to advise the shareholders of a proposed amendment to the bylaws. Final approval is given when the shareholders approve the amendment.
