This form is an agreement for the dissolution of a General Partnership, and can be used for a partnership that consists of up to ten persons. This agreement provides that during the "winding up" phase, the Partners except for the named "liquidating partner" will no longer have the power to act on behalf of the partnership business. The liquidating partner has the ongoing responsibility to collect assets, pay debts, liquidate assets, distribute assets (or debts) as agreed in this agreement, take care of tax issues, and finally to formally terminate the business and give the public notice of the partnership's termination.

Many events can trigger a dissolution of partnership, and the partnership agreement usually spells out certain events such as (i) the passage of time (ii) liquidation or sale of the main partnership asset (such as a rental apartment building) or (iii) the agreement between the partners. Once understanding and an agreement to dissolve the partnership is reached between the partners, this form can be used to execute that decision.

If your partnership has less than ten partners, skip the blanks that do not apply. If you have more than ten partners we suggest you obtain counsel to draft a dissolution agreement specific to your situation.
