Any time you sue someone other than an individual, there is additional information needed to complete the necessary forms. For example, if you are suing an individual doing business as a company, a partnership where there are several people doing business as a company? It is important for you to research this information carefully. Assistance in determining if the person you are suing is a company, corporation, an individual doing business as a company or partnership may be obtained by calling the Clerk of the Circuit Court, Official Records (in the county where the business is located) or the Secretary of State, Corporate Division at 850-488-9000 or visit Sunbiz. If you determine that the company you are suing is not a registered corporation, contact the occupational license bureau of the county where the business is located.
