Hello! I am happy to be of service. Here are some affirmative defenses for breach of contract.
Termination of a Contract for Cause. Often, the actual contract terms provide for one party to unilaterally terminate a contract and cease performance due to circumstances which usually include misconduct by the other party. The explicit language of the contract will spell out exactly what constitutes “cause” and the steps one must take to formally terminate the agreement and stop performing.
Do you mean 6 months since you have been sued?
Yes, there is time for you to answer the suit. You should have received instructions on the time in which you are allowed to file an answer with the pleadings.
Take your time and draft your answer and file by the deadline.
Do you have any additional questions for me?
You may use as many affirmative defenses as you believe apply.
