Dissolving a partnership
I had a partner who abandoned our business years ago and has returned claiming that she is still part owner. Does she have a legal leg to stand on?

Re: Dissolving a partnership
Much depends on the structure and form of the business itself. For example, is it an LLC, Corporation, Partnership, etc. Were there documents you both signed?
If there is enough value in the business to make it worth while for your partner to claim, then you should seriously consider having an attorney review the situation. You may have an argument that the partner's claim is worthless, but I'd suggest at least a brief legal review before laying out your position.
