With a few exceptions, contracts entered into by minors are not enforceable and may be rescinded. However, contracts of necessity, like food or shelter, are typically binding despite having been entered into by a minor. Minors may also be able to enter contracts for educational purposes[1] or, in some circumstances, under the “Home, Farm and Business Loans Act”[2]. Contracts made by minors for artistic or creative services or for professional sports may be approved by a court[3]. Once a minor marries, contacts entered into by the minor are enforceable even though the minor has not yet reached the age of majority[4].
