Customer Question
Good morning. A partnership...
Good morning. A partnership agreement states that the members are to make a specified capital contribution. When only one partner performs and holds a 34% can the non-contributing partner's interest be diluted for failing to make contribution as required?
JA: What state are you in? And have you consulted a local attorney?
Customer: Florida
JA: Has anything been officially filed? If so, what?
Customer: Nothing filed. The partners only signed a Partnership Agreement; however, no formal documents were prepared thereafter and the Partnership Agreement is vague and does not deal with failure to contribute.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Not at the moment, thanks

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
