Do You Qualify For An Annulment? 24

Nullity Is Not An Option For Everyone

With the growing number of celebrities receiving annulments, many people are wondering whether they qualify for an annulment . An annulment terminates the marriage as if it never existed, based on the argument that no “valid” marriage ever took place.

Most people seek annulments because it allows them to remarry in their church or because they feel there is a stigma associated with divorce , and that an annulment would essentially wipe their slate clean.

A marriage may be invalid for several reasons , but the majority of annulments are sought based on claims of fraud or incapacity. For example, someone who was intoxicated during the marriage ceremony may argue that they did not have the capacity to enter into the marriage. Or if a woman knew she could not bear children, and misrepresented this information to induce the man into marriage, the marriage may be annulled based on a claim of fraud.

Even if you feel that an annulment is right for you, it’s important to know that annulments are often difficult and expensive to prove, so most people are advised not to pursue one unless they have extremely strong grounds.

    I would like to know if I can get an annulment of my 3 month marriage. My husband and I went into the contract with the intentions of living together in my home and running a business. He has OCD and says my home and it’s uncleaness torments him. You can not eat off my floors, but my home is no dump. I am a professional nurse with a doctoral degree and besides my mother taught me and I practice clean house practices. But someone with OCD I will never measure up to his standards. Is this grounds for annulment? There are other serious issues, like financial we both are senior citizens on a fixed income, and he has made it painfully clear that he is not capable or will to assist me in income manners, now that we are married. But before marriage he promised me the world and all that he possessed. May I use these issues as fraud or false prentense? I am going to get out of the marrieage either by divorce or annulment either way. How will I qualify for legal aid?

    I live in Florida. My wife and I got married at the court house and when the clerk ask her if she took me to be her lawfully wedded husband she said i’ll try. Am I legaly married? I guess she is not trying very hard as she has NEVER live with me since we allegedly got married. Yes thats right we have NEVER LIVE TOGETHER, Can I get an annulment on the grounds of misreprsentation. I expected to have a wife and live with her not live alone in my house. She is living with her mother and we live one block apart she stays every night with her mother and I sleep alone.

  • Angela Templin

    I was wondering if I could get an annulment. I do not trust my husband ,he is mentally absusive,he was not like this before we were married.He loves my kids and he knew it was a package deal.Now he does not want to deal with them. What can I do? I would have never married him if I knew this. I had to quit my job,and go to a job where I can not afford to live on my own,and he know’s this. I was better off before I got married. We sleep in seperate rooms on and off ,and this started only a few months after we were married.

Seperated march 2006. we have not lived together since March of 2006, I since have moved to Ny (2007) and he was deported to Canada in 2007 after trying to move closer to me. Being that he was deported and we seperated less then 2yrs after being married what are my grounds. Would a divorce be granted due to deportation???

I just found out today he has never been divorced from his first wife. I married him this last time in the State of Virginia but we have always lived in Florida. Where should I file for the anulment??
