Simply put, a contract is an agreement obligating one party to render a performance to another. Most contracts are enforceable in court. For a contract to be enforceable, the parties to the contract must have “capacity” to make a contract. Thus, a child may not be bound by the terms of a contract.
Most contracts are never reduced to writing and it would be impractical to reduce every contract to writing. However courts look upon a written document setting forth the terms of an agreement as an important tool in determining what the parties intended when they made their contract.
Some contractual provisions, even when reduced to writing, are disfavored by the law and are unenforceable in court. For example, a contract binding one of the parties to break the law may not be enforced. Bills of sale, purchase orders, employment agreements, leases, suretyship, and non-compete agreements are just a few of the many types of contracts that the attorneys at The Bagert Law Firm deal with regularly.
