My question involves business law in the state of: Florida
I've been looking into forming an LLC (or two) in Wyoming off and on for a couple of months. I've recently acquired a domain name, personally built Android and iOS based applications, and filed a utility patent (via the use of a patent attorney) that covers the software aspects of said applications. The business will only have an internet/app store presence.
The only issue I'm concerned about is privacy - specifically separating my name from the business and its assets. This is a concern for me because the domain name and mobile applications directly relate to marijuana and the greater marijuana culture. I would like to avoid any awkward questions from future employers or medical schools (in the middle of the application process). And it would be even better if the drug cartels, wannabe gang members, and stoners with too much time on their hands didn't know my name or where I lived.
Is the following scenario possible?
With the use of Registered Agents, I'd create two LLCs - ParentName, LLC and MJBusiness, LLC. I'd set it up so that ParentName is the full owner of MJBusiness and I'd use MJBusiness everywhere on my website, mobile applications, in advertising/promotions, and when registering with Apple and Google to sale my applications. As the owner of ParentName (which will own MJBusiness in Wyoming), I know I'll have to file foreign entity paperwork in Florida - this doesn't bother me as I'm not looking to avoid taxes.
My big question is: Would I also have to file foreign entity paperwork for MJBusiness as well? If so, that would defeat the purpose of privacy.
I do intend on contacting a business attorney in Wyoming once I have a better picture of what I can and can't do.
Thank you for your time,
