Voidable Legal Meaning and Definition

Here is a simplified definition of the legal term Voidable.

Voidable (adjective)

A voidable thing, like a contract, rule, or agreement, is something that can be canceled or declared not valid by a person who is affected by it. These things are not automatically invalid but can be made so if the affected person decides to. Until it is declared invalid, it is still effective and can be enforced. This gives the affected parties a choice to either keep it effective or make it invalid.
