Dwayne, You have helped me before. I am the inventor of a

Hello Dwayne, You have helped me before. I am the inventor of a new disposable bread bag closing device. My question today is:My business is an LLC, which was formed in Minnesota, but I have relocated to Connecticut. I have read online about the options to move my LLC to a new state, but I am not sure which is best. My company is still in start up phase and I have not done any sales yet. Would it be better to dissolve my current LLC and establish a new one in CT? If I follow this route, would it be wise to consider establishing another type of entity? I have thought that an S-Corporation would be wise in order to avoid double taxation and also because I want my wife to have shares, and perhaps have other partners in the future.

In Virginia, ABC, LLC owes my company $4000.00. The owner of that business "cancelled" the LLC regisration with the state, and formed a new registration with the state of a slightly different name 1ABC,LLC. The business is still operating in the same location and he claims to be "one of the owners". I want to file suit against the business. Can he avoid debts by just changing the business name and registration with the state?

I am a nurse that wrote a provisional patent last summer

I am a nurse that wrote a provisional patent last summer for a wound care dressing I designed. I had plans to get funding and make my dressing in the year before writing the full patent but those plans fell through, but I still want to convert my patent to not loose the IP. With the patent, I plan to just try to sell or license the idea (or may even partner with my employer). Here's my concern, I am married now but may possibly be getting a divorce so I am concerned to protect what I can while I am still married since I don't want file for divorce quite yet (we have children together but he has a drinking problem so I'm not that optimistic). My husband has no involvement in this business venture of mine, but he is aware of it so even though he is not supportive of me if we divorced, he would try to take everything he can from it. I put the provisional patent in my name but I am going to apply for an LLC and put the patent in the LLC name. I did a quick google search on protecting your LLC in a divorce and I saw something about putting it in a trust. Can you tell me if that is my best shot to protect him from getting half (I understand I may have to give him some money, but I'm in FL and I know everything is 50/50 here, he doesn't deserve half when he has done nothing..if I even make anything on this).I have to file my patent by Aug 19th. The medical firm that wrote my patent said I don't need to change anything from the provisional and I can just file, but a Score mentor suggested I have a firm that specializes in wound care look over the patent. That wound care firm asked me the name of my LLC before starting the project so I am crunched for time to get this LLC going. If the trust is the thing to do, can I just open an LLC to get the patent going and then meet with an attorney to transfer the LLC to the trust after or do I have to meet with an attorney first for protection?(and what kind of attorney? Estate attorney?)
