Under these circumstances you will have to sue your partner in civil court in order to get a court order to force him to buy you out of the business. At this point, if your partner is not cooperating then there is no way to force them to do anything unless you contact a local attorney who handles business matters to handle the situation for you. If you contact your local county bar association or you contact your local courthouse, you can ask for referrals to local business law attorneys in your area who will review your case and most likely file a civil lawsuit on your behalf to get these matters sorted out once and for all. I wish that I could tell you that there is a way for you to do this without using an attorney but if your business partner will not cooperate with you, then there is no other way to do it.

Hello again Anh -
There is nothing that we can do for you here at Just Answer to assist you with this. We do not represent customers in an offline capacity. As I said earlier, the only way to get your partners to buy you out (if your partners will not do so voluntarily) is to hire a local attorney and pursue the matter with a civil lawsuit into your local district court and your attorney will ask the judge for a court order for the partner to buy you out. If you consult with a local attorney the meeting will only cost a few hundred dollars and you can find out what to do from there. TO handle such a case like this, the lawyer will probably charge you several thousand dollars -- but the first meeting to find out where you stand and what to do should only be a few hundred dollars.
