We have an operating agreement that was written up but never signed or filed to my knowledge. My partner moved out of state and never filed change of address. We haven't made a dime yet I just want out.
In most instances, you have a right to withdraw from (dissociate) an LLC unless that right is taken away by the provisions of the Operating Agreement, or another contract, like a buy/sell agreement between the Members. You can notify your partner of your decision to dissociate, and send a copy to the Registered Agent for the company as well.
You haven't mentioned your investment in the company, or whether you are seeking the return of any funds? If so, make that a part of the notice of dissociation as well.
Check with a North Carolina business attorney to make sure the provisions of the NC LLC act permit what I am suggesting.
