Publishing Information

The Fictitious Business Name must be published within 30 calendar days in an adjudicated newspaper in the Santa Barbara County. The publication is subject to fees determined by and payable to the newspaper of your choice.

The first publication must appear in the paper before day 30. Newspapers require lead-time before publication, and it is your responsibility to meet the newspaper deadline so that publication occurs in time. If you miss the publishing deadline, you must re-file with us, paying all fees again.

The statement must be published once a week for four consecutive weeks.

The filing is complete when the Clerk-Recorder's Office receives the proof of publication. Please verify the procedure to return the publication with your selected newspaper as this process may vary.

All information on the Fictitious Business Name Statement, including the residence address, will be published.
