Dissolved Corporations can pose difficulties in the service of process. How to you find all the past directors is one of the challenges.

As mandated by Florida Statute 48.101, if a corporation was dissolved prior to July 1, 1990, and process is to be served on one or more of the directors of that corporation then the court system regards that as being served against all directors of that corporation, since they are all considered to be trustees of that corporation.   If action is to be taken against the corporation itself then process will be served in accordance with Florida Statute 48.081.
