Register a NYC business name?

I dont not have the money for a trademark registration right now. Can I register the name of my business for now? Is there a link to do so or must it be down with a lawyer? I have a very tight budget. Thanks!

You do not need a lawyer neccessarily-- although it can help you through the process and provide you with representation. As for registration, you might want to crowdfund and save up a portion of your earnings to get want you need to begin. You may want to search the database to see that your name is still avaliable for registration. Here you go (Trademark Form):
