Affidavit of Dissolution of Partnership

What is an affidavit of dissolution of partnership?

An affidavit of dissolution of a partnership is a legal document, that is written and presented by a partner to support a suit filed in the court for the dissolution of the partnership. It is prepared to be shown in the court, and hence, is addressed to the judge of the case. This document serves the purpose of evidence and contains the information, that is required by the court, or supports the allegations or issues, that have set the basis for the partnership dissolution.

It is extremely important that the information included in an affidavit is correct and valid. As it is a duly signed document, if the information is found to be counterfeited and incorrect, the person would get penalized by the court. In addition, one needs to have evidence and proof to write the affidavit. The arguments presented should be well-conversed and based on facts.

Affidavit works as legal statement

When a case is filed in court by a partner to seek partnership dissolution, he needs to present his personal statement, duly signed, referred to as an affidavit of dissolution of the partnership. This statement is considered a legal document. The information included in it may vary as per the circumstances. However, a general template of such an affidavit contains the following details:

  • Date of the affidavit.
  • Details of the judge and the court.
  • Details of the person writing the affidavit.
  • Details of the case, including the reference number, date of filing, etc.
  • Starting date and details of the partnership agreement.
  • Affirmation that the information is correct, and the person is well aware of the facts to write the document.
  • The allegations, issues or reasons of dissolving the partnership.
  • Supporting proofs and evidence.
  • Request for dissolution finalization.
  • Signature.

When a duly signed affidavit is presented to the judge, it is kept in the record of the filed suit. It is also used as a reference, or as evidence, by an attorney, defending the party writing the affidavit, to make the case strong as well as by a judge to make the final decision, regarding the dissolution of the partnership and the distribution of assets, while settling the liabilities.

Therefore, the affidavit presented with the correct facts in a timely manner, by a responsible individual, can prove to be a turning point in the case’s decision. All the information and facts, and the signature, should be valid.
