The Law on Annulment in New York and New Jersey
Civil annulment is an option for people who entered into marriages, only to find out that the marriage was not legal to begin with or the situation was not what it was presented to be. In New York and New Jersey, annulment is available to people for reasons such as:
- A spouse was legally married to someone else at the time (sometimes called bigamy)
- One of the spouses was too young to give legal consent to the marriage
- You and your spouse are too closely related to be legally married
- Either you or your spouse could not legally consent to the marriage because of mental illness or impairment
- One of the spouses was forced into the marriage by threats or fraud, including lies like a faked pregnancy
- It is discovered that you and your spouse will never be able to have sexual relations
