It is always advisable to seek professional help when making a Will and planning for the distribution of your estate in the event of your death.
Generally speaking, invalidating a contract lacking contractual capacity may occur when (1) a party to the contract completely lacked an understanding of the contract, or (2) the party lacked a clear understanding of the consequences of entering into the contract.An individual under the influence of alcohol, street drugs, or certain prescription medications cannot legally enter into a contract or give their consent for any action.Even if it is not obvious to others that a person is intoxicated or impaired, they are often unable to think clearly or reasonably, communicate their intentions clearly, or recognize problematic or dangerous situations.In addition to contributing to a lack of contractual capacity, drugs, alcohol, and prescriptions are also considered to render an individual unable to give consent for medical care or sexual acts.While many individuals considered to have developmental or intellectual disabilities, sometimes referred to as “mental retardation,” live on their own and hold jobs, a great deal of effort goes into adapting to an independent lifestyle.Or they encourage you to make friends with someone who is influential when you don’t really enjoy the person, telling you that that person is a great friend when it’s not true. She’ll be a good friend to you.” There are also many different ways of invalidating. Blaming: “You always have to be the crybaby, always upset about something and ruin every holiday.” “Why didn’t you put gas in the car before you got home?
You never think and always make everything harder.” Blaming is always invalidating.
It’s like saying they know you as well as you know you, so they don’t ask, they assume, and may even tell how you think and feel.
Misunderstanding What it Means to Validate: Sometimes people invalidate because they believe if they validate they are agreeing.
For example, a contract is potentially voidable if one party was intoxicated or under the influence of drugs at the time the agreement was made and the document signed.
The intoxicated party may, at a later time, have the right to void the contract, especially if the other party knew he was impaired at the time of the agreement, or had the intent to take advantage of the intoxicated party.
With the exception of minors, a party to a contract later deemed to lack contractual capacity is not automatically relieved of his duties under the contract.
