Age, misrepresentation of by infants

Updated: Aug 20, 2021

If a minor misrepresents his age to bring about a contract he will still not be bound by the contract but equity will not normally allow him to take full advantage of his fraud and may force him to restore any gains he has made and release the other party from any obligation. It will not, however, enforce the contract.
