I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear about your situation.

Unless the agreement itself includes some sort of "cooling off" period, there is unfortunately no automatic legal right to change your mind. The agreement is binding unless the other party has also changed their mind, they'll agree to let you out of it, or you can prove that they coerced you into signing - such as by blocking your path out of the room until you did, or by threatening you or your family. Those are the grounds for voiding an otherwise binding agreement.

If you have any questions or concerns about my response, please reply WITHOUT RATING. It's important that you are 100% satisfied with my courtesy and professionalism. Otherwise, please rate my service positively so I am paid for the time I spend answering questions. If you are on a mobile device, you may need to scroll to the right. There is no charge for follow-up questions. Thank you.
