What do you need from me to form my LLC?

In order to form your LLC, Fiffik Law Group needs the following items: 

  • Completed LLC Questionnaire; 

  • Executed Form SS-4; and 

  • Payment of the filing fee 

 

Depending on your specific circumstances, we may need more documentation such as an EIN letter of valid military identification. 

I'm a veteran, does this change the process?

The Department of States waives the filing fee for a LLC if you are a veteran or reservist.  In order to waive the filing fee, all formation/registration documents must be signed by the veteran or reservist seeking the fee exemption.  Additionally, proof of the veteran's or reservist's status must be attached to the filing.  

 

Valid forms of identification include: 

  • Federal DD-214 form; 

  • Federal NGB-22 form; 

  • a valid Federal Veterans' Administration card; or 

  • valid Department of Defense-issued military identification card. 

 

If you cannot provide proof, you will be responsible for the filing fee. 

How long does it take to form an LLC?

The Department of State varies on their processing times for LLC filings.  Currently, we are seeing filings processed and returned with 2 to 6 weeks. 

 

Please keep in mind that this time frame is an estimate based on multiple factors.  In order to proceed with your Launch, Fiffik Law Group requires a the LLC questionnaire, executed IRS Form SS-4, and payment of the filing fee before filing with the Department of State.  We cannot begin to form your LLC until all the required forms and payments are received. 

What is Fiffik Law Group, PC's role in forming my LLC?

We will act at the Organizer or Incorporator for your LLC.  This means that our firm, and your attorney, will be listed on the Certificate of Organization.  This means that we will file the appropriate documents with the Department of State, but will have no rights or interests in your LLC.   

What if I want a multi-member LLC?

Multi-member LLCs are not included in the LAUNCH BY LEGALSHIELD® package. If you would like to form an LLC with additional members there is an additional charge of $550.00, plus the current filing fee. Multi-member LLCs require different organizational documents and more attention to things such as taxes, accounting, and registration matters. If you would like your LLC to have more than one member, please let us know.  

What is included in my Launch by LegalShield® closing documents package?

Your final documents will includes; 

  • A letter from your Fiffik Law Group Attorney; 

  • A copy of your EIN; 

  • A letter from the PA Department of State recognizing the formation of your LLC; 

  • Your Certificate of Organization; 

  • LLC’s Operating Agreement; 

  • Signed SS-4; and 

  • Resolution of the Incorporator. 

It is very important that you save the digital copies as well as hard copies of each of these documents in a secure location. 

My LLC has been formed, now what?

Congratulations! After Fiffik Law Group sends your final LAUNCH BY LEGALSHIELD® package, your business is one step closer to being fully operational.
