Do I have any legal leg to stand on when it comes to getting her to split our current liabilities? Also, since there was no operating agreement, she believes that she was never legally the co-owner of the business, saying that she just formed the business and can just walk away, but I want some kind of signature stating that she is in fact no longer co-owner. I don't want her coming back and claiming that she deserves half of the assets. How do I go about this if she refuses to come to any agreement, splitting liabilities or not, she has refused to do anything (work or leave the business). Also, I feel as if I can't make any decisions (and there are some that need to be made within the next 2 weeks) without her because she is co-owner; however, like I said she is just sitting on the fence basically being mum. Can I make the decisions without her saying yes or no? Thanks!!
One last thing, as the business continued to need money, we did not want to get a loan, so I personallly kept loaning money to the business. Therefore, I bank account is positive, even though our business lost money. Would we split what the business lost?
