Reasons You Might Get an Annulment

signing divorce papersMany have questions surrounding marriage annulments—particularly, what an annulment is exactly, and what might be grounds for getting an annulment.

An annulment is similar to a divorce in that it legally ends a marriage. An annulment is different, however, in that it declares that a marriage was never technically valid, and therefore that it never existed. Most annulments occur within a matter of weeks or months into a marriage because grounds for annulment are typically discovered early on in a marriage, if any exist. This means that annulments often do not involve dividing property or making decisions regarding children.
