I signed a work for hire agreement, which included a 6-month non-compete clause after the termination of the agreement. When I signed the agreement, I was 17. When we terminated the agreement, I was still 17. Is this legally binding?

Generally speaking a person under the age of 18 is not competent to sign a contract except for necessities. Unless, that is, you waived that somewhere along the line. Of course if you go ahead with what you're thinking of doing you can be sued and will have to defend yourself.. Best to sit out the six months, right?
