A: I'm sorry to hear about your boyfriend's difficult situation. In California, once a contract is signed, both parties are generally bound by its terms; your boyfriend should carefully review the terms of the contract to understand his obligations and any potential breach. Given the serious allegations and potential legal implications involved, your boyfriend should consider seeking legal advice to explore his options and to ensure that his rights are protected, including possible defenses against any lawsuit initiated by the agent.
