(a) A limited partnership that has failed to deliver for filing a registration pursuant to the requirements of section 321.0210, or whose agent resigned pursuant to section 321.0116, subdivision 1, and the resignation has been effective for 30 days without a new agent being appointed by the limited partnership, must be dissolved by the secretary of state as described in this section.
(b) The secretary of state must attempt to provide notice of dissolution to each limited partnership whose agent resigned pursuant to section 321.0116, subdivision 1, if the resignation of the agent has been effective for 30 days without a new agent being appointed by the limited partnership. If the limited partnership has not appointed a new agent within 30 days after the secretary of state attempted to provide notice to the limited partnership, or if the limited partnership has not filed the delinquent registration, the secretary of state must issue a certificate of administrative dissolution and the certificate must be filed in the Office of the Secretary of State.

(d) The administrative dissolution of a limited partnership does not terminate the authority of its agent for service of process, if any.
