A: First ... we would need to review the terms and conditions of the partnership contract ... along with a review of the relevant facts ... I would suggest that you take advantage of a "free initial consultation" with at least two attorneys of your choice... and then we can proceed from there.

A: To add to the answer below, you'll want an attorney to specifically review for the circumstances which allow you to terminate the contract, including whether your partner's performance issues constitute a breach and what kind of notice and opportunities to cure you have to provide. In many cases like this, the termination of the contract comes after negotiations and compromise from both parties.
