Q: can you still have rights to a partnership business after you exit but no contract was drawn up?
I owned a business with my ex and after turmoil and force I exited the situation and the relationship. it is a food business we started together.The business and all recipes were my idea which he admits and has via text - I left but because the situation had become unbareable with his mental abuse and constant arguments. He proceeded to get a LLC with out my knowledge and has opened a restaurant but we still have the partnership license active. When I was told to leave and never come back I did leave for the final time after many times of this but I was never compensated and when requested to be he didn't think he had to. he has kept all supplies that were purchased and whatever funds were in the account at the time and I walked away with nothing. The relationship was heavily toxic and I requested a contract to help make things better but he declined
