Annulment

Wondering if you can get an annulment?


Like a divorce, an annulment is a court procedure that dissolves, or ends, a marriage. An annulment is different from a divorce in that an annulment means you were never married in the first place and you are returned to your prior marital status. Some people still think divorce carries a stigma, so they would rather have their marriage annulled than get a divorce.

 

In California, there are a number of possible “grounds,” or reasons, that a judge might grant a request to annul a marriage:

 

  • The couple is related by blood.
  • One spouse was already married before entering into the second marriage (this is known as bigamy).
  • The person requesting the annulment was not eighteen years old at the time of the marriage.
  • Either spouse perpetrated a fraud to obtain the other party’s consent to marriage. The fraud has to go to the heart, or essence, of the marriage. A good example would be when one spouse persuades the other to marry because of a secret desire to remain in the United States
  • One of the spouses has an “incurable physical incapacity.” This typically refers to male impotence that prevents the couple from having sexual relations.
  • One or both spouses is of “unsound mind” (meaning, a mental condition that prevents them from understanding and appreciating the nature and duties of marriage—including severe intoxication).
  • One spouse forced the other to get married.
