Mobile, AL asked in Consumer Law and Education Law for Alabama

Q: A contract for my child's school requires signature of both parents, but only my wife signed. Is the contract valid?

The contract says the full amount of tuition is still payable if we withdraw our children from the school during the year. Also, we know of multiple other families that have left the school without being required to fulfill their contract, even this year. Could they require us to fulfill our contract while exempting others?

A: If your wife is the only one who signed it, she is probably the only one liable.

Yes, they can require her to pay without requiring others to do so.
