This depends on what your LLC operating agreement states. Usually admitting a new member requires some consent by other members, but again this should be covered in the operating agreement.

As my colleague noted, your LLC's Operating Agreement should spell out how a member's shares can be transferred. Also, depending on whether your ex was your ex when you acquired the shares when the LLC was formed, your ex may already have a claim to those shares, which may have been addressed in your divorce judgement.
See a business lawyer, and/or the lawyer that helped you with the divorce, for help.
Avvo doesn't pay us for these responses, and I'm not your lawyer just because I answer this question or respond to any follow-up comments. If you want to hire me, please contact me. Otherwise, please don't expect a further response. We need an actual written agreement to form an attorney-client relationship. I'm only licensed in CA and you shouldn't rely on this answer, since each state has different laws, each situation is fact specific, and it's impossible to evaluate a legal problem without a comprehensive consultation and review of all the facts and documents at issue.Ask a similar question
You need to refer to the terms of your LLC operating agreent. If you are making this transfer to limit or avoid liability to a third party, the transfer must also satisfy the New York Debtor/Creditor Law.
