Is it possible to convert a sole proprietorship (owned by 1 person obviously) to an LLC with joint ownership between me and my wife?
I don't think filing the paperwork should be too hard for the LLC, but I am having a hard time figuring out how to transfer the business name to the LLC since the DBA was filed as a single owner.

Anyone been through this and know how it works?

When you form the new LLC with the DBA name you will need to complete a "Consent to use similar name" form with the articles of organization.

You will find the form here:

This might be the direct link.
