1. An original copy of the certificate of limited partnership and of any certificates
of amendment or cancellation (or of any judicial decree of amendment or cancellation)
shall be delivered to the secretary of state. A person who executes a certificate as an agent or fiduciary need not exhibit evidence
of his authority as a prerequisite to filing. Unless the secretary of state finds that any certificate does not conform to law,
upon receipt of all filing fees required by law, he shall:
(1) Endorse on the document the word “Filed” and the day, month and year of the filing
(2) File the original in his office; and
(3) Return a copy to the person who filed it or his representative.
2. Upon the filing of a certificate of amendment (or judicial decree of amendment)
in the office of the secretary of state, the certificate of limited partnership shall
be amended as set forth therein, and upon the effective date of a certificate of cancellation
(or a judicial decree thereof), the certificate of limited partnership is cancelled;
however, any such certificate of amendment or cancellation may provide that it is
not to become effective until a specified date after its filing date, but such date
shall not be more than ninety days after its filing date and the certificate issued
by the secretary of state shall indicate such defined effective date.
