Is It Possible Simply to Annul the Marriage Instead of Going Through the Entire Divorce Process?


The court may annul a marriage where there was a legal impediment to the marriage at the time of the ceremony. A classic example is where one party already was married at the time the parties married. Since it is illegal to be married to two people at the same time, the court may annul the second marriage. Another common basis for an annulment is where one party induces the other to enter the marriage by making fraudulent misrepresentations. In general, the effect of an annulment is to treat the marriage as if it never occurred. There are, however, exceptions to that rule.

In most situations, it is more economical simply to seek a divorce instead of litigating whether the marriage was void from the beginning. However, in certain circumstances, an annulment may be beneficial.
