A: Of course, but that may not be the question you want to ask. You want to ask “Where May I sue my partner for depriving me of my rights under my contracts with him?” That Answer depends on where the contracts were made; it may depend on where the contracts were intended to be performed; and it likely depends on where you may find assets belonging to you partner to satisfy whatever judgment you might win. Or, your question might be “What can I do to enforce my rights under this contract?” The answer to that will depend on what the contract says, the surrounding body of facts, and the creativity of the lawyer you consult on this matter.

A: In terms of releasing contracts back to you, if you are referring to being released from the terms of the contract, it could be helpful for an attorney to review the contract, as you point out yourself. The contract could contain terms and provisions that govern the handling of disputes.
