not if we don't have to.
but how do we share dba. Since my proposed associate already owns the dba am I allowed to use it? In talking to CA DRE, I cannot use a dba unless I own it and it appears that if I use his ( my partner's dba) CA assumes I work in his employ, which would create liability for him. I think the solution would be to refile the dba with me as a co owner as well ? Are you familiar enough w/ CA Business and Professions code to answer this?
