The Register of Deeds handles filings for sole proprietorships, partnerships, corporations (doing business under an assumed name), and limited liability companies (LLCs) doing business under an assumed name. You must first perform a name search to find out if someone is already doing business under the name you want. Use the below links to assist with your name search and to download any needed forms.
