You would prove that you own 50% of a business with the written partnership agreement, or articles of incorporation (if a corporation), or articles of organization (if an LLC).
Does that answer your question? Please let me know if you need clarification, as I am happy to continue helping you until you are satisfied.
The fact that he split profits 50/50 seems to indicate that you have a 50% ownership interest. But that's not as helpful as the legal documents that I described above.
