How can somebody best ensure that when they enter into an agreement or relationship with somebody, that they won't later be able to complain that they were unable to understand the terms by reason of either some mental impairment or some disability or deficiency in learning?

    I think this question would be more clearly on-topic here if instead of asking how one can "best ensure" that a party is competent to contract, ask about the test that courts have used to decide whether a party is competent to contract. – user3851 Jun 20 '16 at 19:59
