Understanding The Annulment Process

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.

The Difference Between Annulment And Divorce

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.

Grounds For Annulment

In the state of New York, there are specific circumstances that make a marriage eligible for an annulment. These are separated into two categories: void marriages and voidable marriages. Void marriages are marriages that were void and invalid at their inception. A voidable marriage is a marriage that can be declared void by a judge.

Void marriages include marriages that are incestuous, marriages where one party was already legally married to another person, or where the marriage was officiated by someone without the authority to do so. If your marriage fits into any of these categories, it is legally void and can be annulled.

The requirements for voidable marriages include marriages where one of the parties was too young to legally consent to the marriage, marriages where one of the parties was not mentally able to consent to the marriage, marriages where one of the parties is physically incapacitated, marriages that were entered into on the grounds of force or fraud, or marriages where one of the parties is mentally ill. Our New York annulment lawyer can help you further understand these requirements and if your marriage fits into the category of a voidable marriage.

The Importance Of Experienced Representation

In a case as sensitive and important as an annulment, having a seasoned, experienced lawyer like our New York annulment lawyer on your side is invaluable. A lawyer will consult with you on the details of your marriage and investigate the past and present circumstances surrounding your marriage. If they determine that your marriage has legal grounds for annulment, they will build a case that displays this to the judge in order to procure the annulment.
