I have signed a contract with a martial arts studio for a one year term. I didn't read the fine print (go figure). My financial situation has changed and I am working all the hours I can at work which has left me with no time to take my son to the class. Is there any hope for me to get out of this contract? The fine print has only three reasons for cancelation death, disability, or moving ten miles away from the studio. I have already talked to the owner who has told me no and acted insulted that I would ask to leave. Do you think ADHD is enough of a disability to terminate the contract or is there no hope?
From what I gather, you registered your son in a one year class and he has been diagnosed with ADHD. If that is the case, then the doctor who diagnosed your son can make the call whether ADHD will qualify as a disability for this class. If so, you will have grounds to terminate the contract due to disability. However, you will most likely require a note from the doctor indicating such.
