Do you need to annul a marriage?

Annulment is different than both legal separation and divorce because the marriage is considered to have never been valid at all. In a divorce, the married couple seeks to end their marriage. In a legal separation, the couple seeks to spend time apart from one another to work through differences and (often) try to come back together again after a certain amount of time. In an annulment, however, the court shows that the "couple" was never married. The supposed marriage was not legitimate.

Necessary Terms for an Annulment

  • There are several different reasons why a marriage would be considered annulled. By California law, there are specific conditions that must exist in order for a judge to grant an annulment:
  • One or both of the married partners was already married
  • Incestuous marriage
  • Either of the spouses was too young to marry
  • One of the spouses is physically or mentally incapable of carrying on a marriage
  • The marriage was entered through fraud, or it is discovered after the wedding that one of the partners has undisclosed children, a hidden criminal record, or other undisclosed negative issue.
