Hi,

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will assist you with your legal question.

Do you know if your business has incorporated with the State?

If so, do you know what the entity form is?

Also, do you have a written agreement which spells out the rights and responsibilities between you, your wife and the other partner?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
We don't have agreement ,she say she have % high than me and my wife ? That why she want to do whatever she want . She got 50% , I got 35% and my wife 15% = 50% together . I don't understand she told me , she got % high than us ?
Expert:  TexLaw replied 1 year ago.
Thank you for your response. As a general partnership, each partner has authority to act on behalf of the partnership, but when a matter is disputed, it comes to a vote. Since the total amount of you and your wife's interests are 50%, and her's is 50%, she does not have a controlling interest and cannot do something without your consent when you and your wife have both voted against her.

So, in sum, no, she does not have the right to do what she is doing. You can sue her for breach of partnership agreement.

You would sue her for breach of partnership agreement. Each state has a Partnership Act which provides the terms of a partnership when there is no written agreement. Your agreement would simply be an oral agreement upon which you would sue.

You can sue to recover the amounts she is spending without authorization or the amount you would have taken in profits had she not spent the money without authorization.
