  • How the heck can I form a Delaware Series LLC on my own?

    In my current state, filing a traditional LLC is cheap, but a DBA is incredibly slow and expensive. Approval, hefty fee to the county, has to get published in the county newspaper, etc. An SLLC is a much better fit. Here's what I t...

    Glenn’s Answer

    It is unlikely that forming anything in Delaware makes sense for you as it rarely does for a small business unless there are significant investors. But either way get a good business attorney to help you.

    Glenn’s Answer

    If you are evicting for a breach of the lease agreement, no minimum notice is required, although I generally recommend at least three days.

    I can't advise regarding your other issue.

    We would like to eliminate 2 partners out of 8 in LLC, what are the measurements we have to take into consideration? out of 8 partners, how many people majority require to execute operations?

    Glenn’s Answer

    Assuming you do not have an operating agreement, you generally cannot remove a member of an LLC. There are some fairly rare exceptions, but I would need to know more to determine whether they apply.

  • Partnership sale

    In a small partnership business if a partner offers to sell his share to another partner through email, how long does this offer is valid? Is email is considered as written offer?

    Glenn’s Answer

    Unless a time period is set forth in the offer, it continues until either accepted, rescinded or countered.

    Yes, an e-mail can be considered a writing, but it depends on the facts.

  • Defendant keeps changing addresses and agents to stop service of complaint

    The defendant, (a corporation), keeps changing its registered agent and every time the Marshal tries to service they say "wrong address". They have changed registered agents twice on the SOS site since I filed my complaint. I've already amended th...

    Glenn’s Answer

    There are alternative ways of service when you cannot reasonably serve the registered agent, including serving officers and through publication. However, these can be very tricky since they are an alternative to personal service. As such, you should have an attorney assist with perfecting service this way.

  • How do I add a division to a created LLC?

    My husband and I formed a transportation LLC this year. I want to add a employment service division of the current LLC. Do I have file anything with the state of GA or the IRS?

    Glenn’s Answer

    A "division" is simply a different kind of services/products of a company and not a legally separate entity. You should consider creating a holding company and putting each line of business in its own LLC. Speak with a local business attorney to get more comprehensive advice.

    Because Georgia law allows a landlord the right to evict in certain situations upon at least 60 days' notice. Just like a tenant can do the same with 30 days' notice.
