Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
If you've ever gone through a divorce, you know that it's not exactly the easiest thing in the world. Maybe that's why some marriages may end in annulments instead of divorce.
Emotionally, divorce can be draining. Financially, it can be stressful. Logistically, it can be a nightmare.
In the eyes of the law, annulments allow separating couples to treat their marriage as if it never existed. Here are three things you should know about how marriage annulments work:
- One of the parties was incapable of giving legal consent at the time of the marriage.
- One of the parties was temporarily insane.
- One person fraudulently misrepresented information vital for the marriage.
- There was duress at the time of consent.
- One of the spouses was already married at the time.
- The marriage was incestuous.
- One or both spouses were intoxicated or under the influence.
- The marriage could not be consummated.
- One of the parties was underage and the parents did not give consent.
If you're wondering how to get an annulment, it might be prudent to consult a local family attorney to get more information about your state's marriage annulment laws.
