(1) A partner's dissociation does not of itself discharge the partner's liability for a partnership obligation incurred before dissociation. A dissociated partner is not liable for a partnership obligation incurred after dissociation except as provided in subsection (2).
(2) A partner who dissociates without resulting in a dissolution and winding up of the partnership business is personally liable as a partner to the other party as the result of a partnership obligation incurred in connection with a transaction entered into by the partnership or a surviving partnership under 35-10-635 through 35-10-637 and 35-10-641 through 35-10-644 within 2 years after the partner's dissociation only if the other party to the transaction:
(a) reasonably believed when entering the transaction that the dissociated partner was a partner at that time;
(b) did not have notice of the partner's dissociation;
(c) is not considered to have had knowledge under 35-10-310(5) or notice under 35-10-622; and
(3) By agreement with the partnership creditor and the partners continuing the business, a dissociated partner may be released from liability for a partnership obligation.
(4) A dissociated partner is released from liability for a partnership obligation if a partnership creditor, with notice of the partner's dissociation but without the partner's consent, agrees to a material alteration in the nature or time of payment of a partnership obligation.
