If I’m trying to start an LLC, what should I do?

My husband an I are trying to create an online business that focuses on internet marketing. There will only be myself and possibly him as any type of management in the company. We plan on opening an office and hiring a few employees eventually. Is it safer to have just myself as the single person in the LLC or should I have my husband as well who is working with me? What do I need to file to start my LLC? Fictitious name, EIN and what not. What paperwork do I need to make to protect myself with my customers and within my own company for tax reasons – Terms and Service Agreement, Operating Agreement, etc?

Well some of the issues will depend upon what State you reside as to whether or not community property or commom law will apply. In either case, the decision as to which type of legal entity you will want to use...will depend upon how you want to structure management...how you want to address the tax issues...and what transition or exit plan you may have in mind. The best "next thing" to do is to call a Business Development Attorney of your choice and schedule that usually free initial 30 minute consultation.
