A: For state-specific laws, you'd need to contact an Arizona attorney. As a general matter, it comes down to the enforceability of the contract. If the contract is for the performance of an illegal act, that means it is void. The contract has no legitimacy. It simply cannot be enforced. If only one party in the transaction has power to enforce it, such as a minor, then it would be voidable. However, this is a very simple illustration of the concept, and there is more to it under Arizona law. Good luck
