An annulment is when a court says your marriage is NOT legally valid. After an annulment, it’s as if your marriage never happened because it was never legal. Annulment isn’t an option in all cases, as you have to prove to the court that your marriage qualifies for annulment.
Some reasons the court may grant an annulment are:
- If you or your spouse were a minor at the time of the marriage
- If you or your spouse were already legally married to someone else at the time of the marriage
- If you or your spouse can show that you got married due to fraud, force, or while incapacitated.
