Membership interest in an LLC may not be as protected as you think. Judgment creditors may seek charging orders against the financial membership interest of a member in an LLC, and in the case of a single member LLC, Florida Statute 608.433 sets forth circumstances in which the interest of a single member LLC can be foreclosed upon by a judgment creditor. It is important that you understand your rights with respect to corporate interests whether they be stock ownership, membership interest or partnership interest.
