What is the best way for me to invest in an 18-month old

What is the best way for me to invest in an 18-month old high-tech LLC start-up company (that is going into round 2 of angel investment funding) while protecting against future dilution of my investment and possible liabilities that go beyond the amount I invest? The initial plan is ownership equity followed by employment a year or two later (currently the llc does not have the budget yet to compensate me). Are their alternative ways that I can defer the compensation while providing them with my professional services, in order to limit my investment risk and personal liability?

I am very interested to go in to buying and selling real

Good afternoon,I am very interested to go in to buying and selling real estate properties in a short term. I believe the term for that is flipping. I read some information about the legal aspect of these transactions by googling the word. Most comments indicate that there is no legal issue with it. However, I noticed a comment by a person that said that in Washington, there is a legal issue with it. I live in California and I went be rest assured that this is completely legal here.

I am a web designer and created a website, graphic material

I am a web designer and created a website, graphic material (primarily a logo), Facebook page, and email list for my husband's business. There was no contract. The domain name for the website is the same as his business name. He has a sole-proprietor, no trademark. The domain name is ***** ***** my name. The website is hosted on my server. I registered a copyright on the logo in my name.Prior to building the website, I paid $5,000 towards his business start-up fees, as well as $2,000 towards his immigration application. He promised to repay these amounts. I created the website to help him establish himself and our verbal agreement is that once his business began to earn money, he would repay me.He has been earning money for 10 months and he did not repay me.We separated 6 weeks ago.He will not agree to signing our separation agreement, which partly outlines repayments of his debt to me, until I give him sole ownership of the website and marketing material. I have asked for payment towards the website before giving it to him.His lawyer says they will take me to court unless I give him sole ownership of the website. Am I obligated to give it over? What are my rights (copyright, domain name ownership, etc)? Is there a Family Law loophole of which I am not aware?
