1) What are the steps to add new member to single member LLC?

2) from researching, it seems all one needs to do is to file new amended articles of organization LLC-2 and statement of information llc-12?

3) If the forms above are the correct ones, when I filed these originally I saw no spaces for entering information on the new partners or what their shares would be. Does this go in a separate page to be attached to those 'cover' forms?

Make sure any pre-admission requirements in the LLC Operating Agreement have been met, and check your state's securities laws if a purchase of the membership is involved. If there is no OA, then you and the new member can sign a simple agreement whereby the new member is admitted and the terms of the admission. Afterward, is essential to complete an Operating Agreement.
