Thanks for following up. Without any understanding of what kind of contract is involved, I really can't answer your question with any degree of certainty or accuracy. Given this, I am going to opt out so another expert can timely provide you the information you seek. Please do not respond to this post as it will only slow the process of such an expert picking up your question. Take care.

Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

No phone call request appears I am afraid.

I am a DIFFERENT CONTRIBUTOR, most times these issues can be resolved in this forum by typing without you incurring the additional expense of a phone call.

If you signed a contract, the whole purpose of using written contracts is to bind the parties to the agreement they made. If you want get out of the contract, you must read the contract for a cancellation clause and if there is no cancellation clause, then you are bound to the contract until the end of the contract UNLESS you can prove the other party breached the contract in some material way and refuses to perform under the contract. If the party is performing under the contract, then you canceling would be a breach and could make you liable for damages to pay them to the end of the contract.

If the party is not performing under the contract you can seek to terminate the contract and sue for breach to recover any money damages you incurred based on their failure to perform.
