  • It is a court order declaring that the couple was not ever legally married.
  • May be an alternative to divorce if religious, cultural or family reasons do not allow divorce
  • It can be a possible way of negotiating asset protection when divorce will not.
  • By being declared “never married” a couple will avoid the label of “divorced.”
  • Lack of capacity may have led to a “marriage” that was not legal due to mental impairment.
  • One party in the couple was currently married and, thus, cannot marry another person. This may be grounds for annulment.
  • Fraud or misrepresentation may also be grounds for annulment: one partner did not reveal a criminal past or serious medical disorder prior to the marriage.
  • Short duration marriages and marriages that were performed under the influence of drugs or alcohol are also common grounds for annulment.
