A minor can walk away from a contract (it's called "disaffirming" or "voiding" the contract). Of course, he has to give the money back or face criminal charges. A minor can decide to void a contract before reaching the age of maturity (depending on the state, but usually 18). The minor can make this decision at any time and even if the contract has been fully performed (both parties have fulfilled their contractual obligations)
