to be honest, we have no partnership agreement, it is two of us on the Articles of Incorporation, the master business application for license.

Two months into the company opening, in walks two of his friends and he looks at me and says, i said that these guys can each have 25% of company whenever we sale down the road. all verbal, nothing ever in writing or filed. to this day they were paid salary like employees, never added to anything, but now they all 3 came in saying goodbye to me because majority rules. Isnt my Articles and sos filings my legal proof that me and other manager are the only legal managers (owners) of this company?
