Do I qualify for an annulment?

Annulment also ends a marriage, but on different grounds than a divorce. Annulments are usually retroactive and often based on grounds of fraud. When parties were legally incapable of marrying in the first place, such as those who were underage, an action declaring the nullity of the void marriage can be obtained. Because there are many complications and details involved in any matrimonial action, it is important that you have the competent guidance of an attorneys who practices in this field.

Annulments fall under two categories: void marriages and voidable marriages.

Void Marriages

These marriages are those that were never legitimate under the law. Examples include:

  • Incestuous marriages
  • Previous marriages that were not dissolved and the former spouse is still living

Voidable Marriages

These marriages can only be voided by the court. The court has the right to deny the request for annulment and rule that the marriage is valid. The court will consider annulment if one or both spouses is or was:

  • Under the age of consent
  • Incapable of consenting because of lack of mental capacity, or mental illness
  • Incapable of consummating the marriage because of an incurable physical condition
  • Forced to consent under duress or fraud
  • Suffering from an incurable illness for 5 or more years

    Unfortunately, divorce is all too common these days. Thank God mine was uncontested and fairly simple. The entire process took 4 months.. I never had to go to court, and only had to visit the office twice. Done efficiently and in a thorough manner.

    "They do what they say they are going to do and they will fight for your best interest. Please trust their judgment as it is a difficult process for everyone."
    I have went through a very difficult process. I went through two attorneys before meeting the Wayne Crowe Jr staff. I am so appreciative that I had the opportunity to have their staff work for me. I wish that I would have went to them first. Their staff Wayne, Caroline, Lee, Brian and Scott were all hands on and wonderful people. They not only cleaned up the mess the previous attorneys made. They were diligent, understanding and compassionate. I had the pleasure of having Caroline represent me and she is amazing.
