    Sec. 35-20. Filing of statement of termination.
    (a) Duplicate originals of the statement of termination shall be delivered to the Secretary of State. If the Secretary of State finds that the statement of termination conforms to law, he or she shall, when all required fees have been paid:
        (1) endorse on each duplicate original the word
"Filed" and the date of the filing thereof; and
        (2) file one duplicate original in his or her office.
    (b) A duplicate original of the statement of termination shall be returned to the representative of the dissolved limited liability company. Upon the filing of a statement of termination, the existence of the company shall terminate, and its articles of organization shall be deemed cancelled, except for the purpose of suits, other proceedings, and appropriate action as provided in this Article. The manager or managers or member or members at the time of termination, or those that remain, shall thereafter be trustee for the members and creditors of the terminated company and, in that capacity, shall have authority to convey or distribute any company property discovered after termination and take any other action that may be necessary on behalf of and in the name of the terminated company.
