How do you have to file a lawsuit against an ex-partner

Customer Question

How long do you have to file a lawsuit against an ex-partner for a business where they agreed to pay you for withdrawing from the partnership agreement? I have a written contract that was signed before a notary and the business was located in Ohio?

Effective September 28, 2012, Ohio Revised Code (ORC) Section 2305.06 was changed to provide for a statute of limitations of eight years on claims based on the breach of a written contract, which it sounds like is what you are talking about.

I am familiar with the 8 year statute of limitations. Would that be based off of the signed date of the written contract? Is it additional money to speak with you over the phone?
Expert:  Dwayne B. replied 1 year ago.

It is based off of the date of the breach of the contract, not the signing date. Yes, the website charges extra for phone calls but I don't do them. I only provide services through this type of forum for a variety of reasons. Almost all questions can be resolved in this type of forum.
