Obtaining A Marriage Annulment


A marriage annulment can be obtained once the couple has proved that something has gone wrong within the marriage. All states approve different reasons from marriage annulment, however common reasons include: involvement with fraud, previous marriages, or mental illness. Although all states do not require an attorney for a marriage annulment, it is advisable to hire one to help clarify and deal with the confusing aspects of the case.

Marriage annulment separates a couples assets, properties, and determines child custody arrangements. Each state has different laws in terms to getting a marriage annulment, so the process will vary. Some religions require an annulment through the church as well as through the court. To properly address a marriage annulment, it is advisable to speak to a legal representative, a local court house, and if applicable the church in which the marriage took place.
