Section: Capital stock savings bank incorporation
Resignation of registered agent. a. The registered agent of a domestic limited partnership or a foreign limited partnership authorized to transact business in this State may resign by complying with the provisions of this section.
b. The registered agent, or, in the case of a registered agent who is deceased or has been declared incompetent by a court of competent jurisdiction, his legal representative, shall serve a notice of resignation by certified mail, return receipt requested, upon a general partner or general partners of the limited partnership at the address last known to the agent, and shall make an affidavit of such service. If service cannot be made, the affidavit shall so state, and shall state briefly why service cannot be made. The affidavit, together with a copy of notice of resignation, shall be filed in the Office of the Secretary of State.
c. The resignation shall become effective 30 days after the filing in the office of the Secretary of State of the affidavit of service or upon the designation by the limited partnership of a new registered agent pursuant to this act, whichever is earlier. If the limited partnership fails to designate a new registered agent within the 30 day period, the limited partnership shall thereafter be deemed to have no registered agent or registered office in this State, until the limited partnership files a certificate of change of address of registered office and registered agent indicating the new registered office and registered agent.
d. If any certificate of change replacing a resigned agent is not filed, the limited partnership shall, after written demand therefor by the Secretary of State, forfeit to the State a penalty of $200.00 for each year or part thereof until an agent is appointed. The Secretary of State may issue a certificate to the Clerk of the Superior Court that the limited partnership is indebted for the payment of this penalty. This certificate shall be entered by the Clerk as a judgment docketed in the Superior Court, and shall have the same form as a docketed judgment.
