I've got an RIA registered in Florida for the last 2 years, but have also maintained my series 7 licencse as an rr for Brokersxpress. Now that that company is leaving the business, I'm considering dropping the RR side altogether.

I'm curious how complicated it is to register in multiple states as an RIA. I've done it for Florida; is the process similar in other states?  (copying and pasting that online ap for other states , plus or minus a few nuances on each state's site?) Is it about as long as the initial registration or is it speeded up by the fact that you've already been approved in one state?

Does anyone have any experience with some of the companies specialising in helping RIA's establish themselves? Is it worth farming out this activity?
