Getting an annulment

Follow Us

An annulment can be requested if the marriage was voidable for the following reasons:

·         One of the parties was already married

·         One of the parties was a minor

·         The marriage was between two relatives

·         One of the parties was not able to understand the marriage contract – unsound mind

·         The marriage was based on fraud or intentional deception

·         The threat of force was used

·         One of the parties was incapable of copulation

An annulment is a legal process for declaring a marriage null and void and can be obtained for any of the above reasons.  Once it is granted, it is as if the marriage never existed.

An annulment is not as common as a divorce.  It would be wise to contact an experienced Riverside Family Law attorney who will help you fill out the required forms and file them correctly.
