Tips: Void has several meanings and uses, but in some sense, they all pertain to emptiness or pointlessness. If something is void, it is empty, invalid, or pointless. It is the same as if it had never existed. A common legal phrase is "null and void," which means that something (such as a contract) has been deemed invalid or pointless.

When their youngest child left home for college, the couple filled the void in their lives by traveling. (emptiness, vacancy) noun

The contract was declared null and void by the judge. (invalid) adjective
