One original of the certificate of limited partnership, of any certificates of amendment or cancellation or of any judgment or judicial order of amendment or cancellation, shall be submitted for filing to the Office of Secretary of State. A person who executes a certificate as an agent or fiduciary need not exhibit evidence of such authority as a prerequisite to filing. Unless the Secretary of State finds that any certificate does not conform to the filing requirements of this chapter, upon receipt of all filing fees required by law, the Secretary of State shall file the certificate, judgment or judicial order and return an acknowledgment of filing to the sender.
Upon the filing of a certificate of amendment or judgment or judicial order of amendment by the Secretary of State, the certificate of limited partnership shall be amended as set forth therein.
A certificate of limited partnership is canceled on the date that a certificate of cancellation or the judgment or judicial order of cancellation is filed by the Secretary of State unless the certificate, judgment or judicial order specifies another effective date.
