Is an Annulment Right for You?

If you're wondering, "what an annulment?" you're not alone. For individuals that are considering divorcing their spouse and who meet specific requirements, an annulment may be preferable to a divorce.

What Is an Annulment?

An annulment is different than a divorce. In a divorce, the parties end a legal and valid marriage. In an annulment (also commonly called "a nullity"), the court rules that the marriage was never legally valid to begin with.

There are a few reasons someone may want to file for a nullity as opposed to a divorce. One of the main reasons that people seek a nullity as opposed to a divorce is for religious purposes. Some religious cultures do not favor divorce, but offer estranged couples a way to end a marriage through annulment. However, there are also legal reasons to support an annulment, the primary one being that annulments are often much easier to process and have less serious long-term consequences than a divorce.

In California, to get a judgment of nullity, your situation must fall into one of the grounds outlined in Family Code 2210. A marriage is voidable if:

  • One of the parties was under the age of 18 at the time they were married, and a parent or legal guardian didn't consent to the marriage.
  • Either party was of unsound mind at the time they were married.
  • Consent to enter the marriage was obtained by fraud.
  • Either party was physically incapable of entering the marriage state, and that incapability appears to be incurable.
  • A marriage is void if the relationship between the parties is incestuous, or if one of the parties is already married.

There are specific timelines individuals must adhere to in order to receive a nullity from a court. To learn more about what a typical annulment timeline might look like for you, call the annulment attorneys at Cecil Cianci Law, PC.
