NJ Rev Stat § 42:2A-36 (2013) What's This?

42:2A-36. Liability of partner for contribution
Liability of partner for contribution. a. Except as provided in the certificate of limited partnership, a partner is obligated to the limited partnership to perform any promise to contribute cash or property or to perform services and this obligation shall not be affected by his ability to perform because of his death or his disability or any other reason. If a partner does not make the promised contribution of property or services, he or, if he is deceased, his estate is obligated at the option of the limited partnership to contribute cash equal to that portion of the value, as stated in the limited partnership agreement, of the stated contribution that has not been made.

b. Unless otherwise provided in the partnership agreement, the obligation of a partner to make a contribution or return money or other property paid or distributed in violation of this chapter may be compromised only by consent of all the partners. Notwithstanding the compromise, a creditor of a limited partnership who extends credit, or whose claim arises, after the filing of the certificate of limited partnership or an amendment thereto which, in either case, reflects the obligation, and before the amendment or cancellation thereof to reflect the compromise, may enforce the original obligation.

L. 1983, c. 489, s. 35; amended 1988,c.130,s.19.
