Why do you say it was not signed correctly?
Was there any inducement for you to sign the contract? As in, did they say something that was untrue that you relied upon to sign the contract? Some misleading information to make you sign?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Two names on contract only one signed.
Expert:  Daniel replied 4 months ago.

Well does that void the contract?
It could well be argued the contract is binding on one party then?
IE the person who signed.
