If you have questions about annulment, our New York, NY annulment lawyer can help you understand the process and guide you through the legal requirements to receive an annulment of a marriage. An annulment is different from a divorce, occurring when a marriage is legally declared invalid and void. There are specific requirements that must be met to receive an annulment, and an experienced lawyer can help you understand what these are and prove them before a judge. If you believe your marriage is void or voidable, contact the Law Office of Daniel Clement today to schedule a consultation and discuss your case.
While annulment and divorce are similar in that they both legally end a marriage, they differ in a very important way. A divorce is the legal ending of a valid marriage. An annulment is the legal, court-ordered ending of a marriage that was never or is now not legally valid. This means that to procure an annulment, a judge must determine that your marriage has legal grounds to be ruled void.
