If you want to withdraw from a business partnership, it is necessary to draft a written Notice of Withdrawal from Partnership and serve it to the remaining partners. Partnerships are organized on the state level in the United States, and all states require a notice for this endeavor.
However, most states don't specify how the notice should look. It can be as simple as a formal business letter just so long as the intention is clear to all.
There are two major types of withdrawals from a partnership: voluntary and involuntary. A voluntary partnership withdrawal is when a partner decides on their terms to get out of the partnership. For example, when it is time to retire. The withdrawing partner would be responsible for creating the Notice of Withdrawal from Partnership.
As for involuntary withdrawals, this happens when one partner is forced out of a partnership, whether they like it or not. In this case, the rest of the partners would create and serve the Notice of Withdrawal from Partnership.
Depending on your state, a Notice of Withdrawal from Partnership may also be known as:
Notice of Partnership Withdrawal
Business Partnership Agreement Withdrawal
Partnership Dissolution Agreement
Partnership Withdrawal Letter
Partnership Withdrawal Agreement
Reducing the number of partners in a partnership, voluntary or involuntary, will require a Notice of Withdrawal from Partnership. Some states may mandate that the Notice of Withdrawal from Partnership be given a set number of days in advance.

General Partnership: A business structure where the owners are partners, almost like multiple sole proprietors coming together.
Limited Partnership: This signals that the particular partner has limited power and also less liability.
Severability: The quality of a document, such as an agreement or lawmakers' bill, being valid even when some parts or provisions are struck out (valid without the offending parts or conditions).
Drawings: The amounts a partner can remove from the partnership's accounts.
GAAP: Generally Accepted Accounting Principles – accounting standards endorsed by the SEC and used by American corporations (from the IRS's standards).

The signing requirements are commonly stipulated in the partnership agreement. If notice is required, the notice period will also be specified before the withdrawal can officially occur. Apart from that, it is customary for all partners to sign the document. Notarization is unnecessary.
Some states require the Notice of Withdrawal to be published in local newspapers, but more often than not, this is not necessary. The Notice of Withdrawal from Partnerships should be sent to the partner in the event of an involuntary withdrawal. The organization should keep a copy on file with all other formal documents of the partnership.
