Representation for Annulments in MA
Annulment vs. Divorce
An annulment is declaring that a marriage never legally existed, while
divorce is bringing the marriage to an end. In a number of ways, an annulment
could be a more beneficial and effective solution, but you must meet the
legal requirements prior to going to court. With
more than 20 years of legal experience, our
Wellesley family law attorneys are committed to helping you being a new chapter of your life.
What are the Legal Grounds for Annulment?
If your marriage was not verified from the date of marriage, you may be
able to have your marriage annulled. Some couples prefer an annulment
compared to a divorce for religious or social reasons. However, not everybody
can obtain an annulment in Massachusetts family court.
The following are the legal ground you must meet in order to qualify for
- Marriage was fraudulent
- Marriage occurred under duress
- Couple related by blood
- One or both spouse was already married
- One party lacked the capacity to give their consent
- Purpose of marriage is to obtain green card or citizenship
- One party was intoxicated
- One spouse was under 18
- One spouse was mentally disabled at the time of marriage
If one spouse hid important information from the other after the marriage
went through, you have grounds for annulment. Information such as their
criminal history, medical history (STDs), if they are pregnant, or if
they aren’t able to have children are acceptable.
