A few years ago I decided to sign my son up for karate classes. Since I had a huge tax refund coming to me, I felt really rich, and decided pay 1/2 the contract when I received my refund. Well I signed the paperwork and was to start in a month from then. Well reality set in and I realized I really couldn't afford to pay $160 a month for classes. I didn't cancel the "contract" properly and now 3 years later the karate place wants $5,000 from me. Colorado law is that any contract needs to be cancelled within 72 hours from the signing date. My son never took one class, but I'm held accountable for my signature of the contract. I asked to have a trial and talk to the judge so I can try to ask for relief of this debt. I don't really know what to expect.
