Void Legal Meaning and Definition

Here is a simplified definition of the legal term Void.

Void (adjective)

When something legal like a law, contract, or agreement is called "void", it means it can't be enforced or followed. This can happen if a higher authority says it's not okay, if it goes against the constitution, or is impractical to follow. For example, a contract could be void if it was made with a child or without something in return. "Void" means it isn't enforceable.
