Is your business a sole proprietorship?

One of the important aspects of forming a business in Pennsylvania is deciding on the business form you will use. You have options, but the most common for a person forming a business by themselves is a sole proprietorship, as explained by Entrepreneur. This business form is the easiest to create because it requires no legal steps. You are operating the business as the sole owner, so you do not have to worry about partnership agreements. You are not forming a legal entity, such as a corporation, so you do not need to file any special legal documents in forming your business.

You each retain your authority and rights over the children as if you and the other parent were still together as a couple.

As with other business formations, there are a number of general requirements expected in forming an LLC.
