Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will try to help you. Please remember I just report or interpret the law, so the outcome may not be what you hoped for.
Are you saying that the LLC is paying the personal bills of your inlaws that do not relate to the business? If the LLC is paying the bills, why would anything be owed your brother-in-laws separate business? Are you in laws also members of the LLC? If so do they receive distributions from the LLC?
I am not sure what result you want. However, here is what should be happening. If the inlaws are receiving more in distributions in the form of cash and having their bills paid, then their capital account would be reduced when the capital accounts of all other participants remain the same, assuming the LLC is making a profit. This means their percentage ownership interest in the LLC is being reduced relative to the ownership percentage of the other members. Any member would have a basis for objecting to the in laws receiving more than their share of profits.
If I have answered all your questions, please positively rate my answer as that is how I receive credit. If you have more questions, please let me know. If the answer was especially helpful you can provide a bonus.
Are you saying the only assets in the LLC are the assets of your in-laws? If that is the case, then whatever money there is would belong to them anyway. I am not clear on what you are saying should be happening.
