Text Search




Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

     37-25A-9.   Appointment of director as agent for service of process--Procedure for service through director. Every seller shall file, in a form the director of the Division of Insurance prescribes, an irrevocable consent appointing the director or the successor in office to be the seller's agent to receive service of any lawful process in any noncriminal suit, action or proceeding against the seller or the seller's successor or personal representative which arises under this chapter, with the same force and validity as if served personally on the person filing the consent. Service may be made by leaving a copy of the process in the office of the director, but is not effective unless the plaintiff or petitioner, who may be the director or the attorney general in a suit, action or proceeding, sends notice of the service and a copy of the process forthwith by registered mail to the defendant's or respondent's address on file with the director, and the plaintiff's affidavit of compliance with this section is filed in the case on or before the return date of the process, if any, or within such further time as the court allows.
