Not being a member of the LLC is a disadvantage. But it sounds like you may have sufficient proof to establish that you were a partner in this business and, if so, you may be entitled to your share of any net sales proceeds after payment of the bills of the business. I recommend consulting with...Read more »
Since you live in New York and the potential defendant lives in Pennsylvania, it makes very little sense to sue for one month's worth of the contract because it will cost you at least that amount to do so.

You can set up your business as an LLC but, if you will be performing services for others that are traditionally performed by licensed agents in Arizona, you will need to employ a licensed person and perform services under his/her license.

Hello. I hate to say it, but this goes WAY beyond the kind of legal advice you should be seeking on an online question and answer forum. It's not really even clear whether you are the plaintiff or defendant, and it's nearly impossible to address issues relating to dismissal without a full...Read more »
Hi, I am getting ready to form an LLC together with my boyfriend, we will be a member-managed LLC. However when adding his name to the application I need to provide an address, but he is currently stationed in South Korea for a year, and we will be moving together to Guam after that.

When you relocate to Guam you will need to update your information. You will also need to maintain a local...Read more »

I can find little trace of them, only two generic business listings with only the information provided on the LLC application from 2003. I found his licence application for the same time period, it shows he never completed his state licence application. Don't think they ever went into business. I... Read more »
I would use a different name. However, if this name is critical to your business, I recommend hiring a private investigator to locate the members of this LLC. Once located, you might negotiate a license to use the name or, perhaps, purchase the LLC itself. You must be certain that the LLC is...Read more »

In a general sense, one of the goals of forming a business entity is to limit the liability of the owners to only what they put into the business and what it earns. However, the success of this goal depends on a lot of factors. You don't mention whether or not you actually formed a business...Read more »
