The age at which one is legally capable of entering into binding contracts, signing a deed and negotiating business agreements. In most states this is the age of majority. Normally this is the age of 18. However, for certain activities, such as drinking alcoholic beverages, the age could be higher or lower in the case of qualifying to obtain a driver's license. A contract, deed, or business agreement is not valid when signed by a minor.
