How does one become a "Partner" in an LLC business? Are there offical papers to be signed? If you work for the company, and you are a payroll office manager, does that make you a "Partner"? Can you be held responsible for the companies debts, if you were never officially a "partner"? Please respond.....just found out my spouse has been sued over 6 months ago, he was not notified and we have a judgement against our personal home.
