Question: Is a contract still valid if it was signed under the influence of alcohol?
Answer: That’s a great question. If the intoxicated person, voluntarily became intoxicated, the answer depends on whether a court would find that s/he was mentally competent at the time s/he signed the agreement. On the other hand, if s/he became intoxicated involuntarily (or not “by choice”), it is more likely that s/he will be excused from obligations existing under the contract. This is not a simple case, and I would recommend that you hire a talented contracts attorney. I can help you, if you send me an email with further details.
