(1) it is in breach of an express provision of the partnership agreement; or

(2) in the case of a partnership for a definite term or particular undertaking, before the expiration of the term or the completion of the undertaking:

(i) the partner withdraws by express will, unless the withdrawal follows the dissociation of another partner and results in a right to dissolve the partnership under Section 10A-8-8.01(2)(i);

(ii) the partner is expelled by judicial determination under Section 10A-8-6.01(5);

(iii) the partner is dissociated by becoming a debtor in bankruptcy; or
