what is a void contract?

Contract that (1) is illegal (inherently void) from the moment it is made, (2) is legal but declared null (having no legal effect) by the courts because it violates a fundamental principle such as fairness, or is contrary to public policy, (3) becomes void due to changes in law or in government policy, or (4) has been fully performed. Lack of capacity to contract (being an infant or minor, intoxicated, or insane) automatically makes a contract void. Contract that is void only in one or few parts may be saved by the process of severance. Not to be confused with voidable contract.
