FBN Statement of Withdrawal

What is a Statement of Withdrawal?

The purpose of registering a Statement of Withdrawal is to make available to the public a statement by a person(s) withdrawing from their partnership of an existing Fictitious Business Name.

Signature of withdrawing party must be executed in the same manner as the Fictitious Business Name Statement.  Statement of Withdrawal must be filed on an active Fictitious Business Name Statement.  The filing of a Statement of Withdrawal from a Partnership does not cause the Fictitious Business Name Statement to expire.

To Withdraw, please follow these steps:

First, research the business name to see if it is taken or look up your previous filing information.  Although we do offer a search service (with fees), it is much more economical and convenient to perform the search yourself at no cost.  You can do this by using our Self-Service search system.
