Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will try to help you. Please remember I just report or interpret the law, so the outcome may not be what you hoped for.
I take it from your post that your partner is out on bail while he is appealing his conviction, is that correct? Do you have any provision in your partnership agreement for valuing the business so the amount of your partner's can be quickly determined? For example there may be a provision that says if the parties do not agree it goes to arbitration or that a particular formula for buyout the interest is in the agreement. Do all your checks have to have both your signatures on them? Does he still come into the business to work?
