Hi I am sorry to hear about the crisis going on in your personal life. Unfortunately, the best answer I can provide is that "it depends." Once you sign a valid contract, the terms of the contract will likely control how you get out of that contract. Some contracts will have a rescission clause that will let you terminate if done so within a prescribed period of time. Others may have written notice requirements or other actions that are needed before the contract can be terminated. It is tough to tell you exactly how you can terminate your contract without first reviewing it.
