***NOTE: Division of Corporations has changed their ‘wait’ policy, June 5, 2019 – Couriers must drop off docs. and pick up the following working day.  This is not at the couriers discretion, but the Division of Corporations decision.  This is due to budget cut backs in the state of Florida, resulting in staff reduction.
