At the Law Office James Chau, we can assist you with your annulment.
What is an annulment? An annulment, also known as “nullity of marriage” or “nullity of domestic partnership”, is when a court determines your marriage or domestic partnership is not legally valid.
Two types of marriage that are never legal and qualify for annulment include a spouse or domestic partner is already married to or in a registered domestic partnership with someone else, and where a spouse or domestic partner is already married to or in a registered domestic partnership with someone else.
Other circumstances in which an annulment may be sought are the party filing for the annulment was under 18 years old at the time of the marriage or domestic partnership, either party was of “unsound mind” or unable to understand the nature of the marriage or domestic partnership, either party got married or registered the domestic partnership as a result of fraud (this could include someone hiding a primary motive of marriage only for residency status, or hiding the inability to have children), either party being consenting to marriage or domestic partnership as a result of force, or either of the spouses or partners was physically incapable of “consummating” the relationship) and the incapacity continues and appears to be “incurable.”
Each of these reasons has important details you have to prove to get a court to give you an annulment. To get an annulment, you must be able to prove to the judge that one of these reasons is true in your case. This makes an annulment case very different from a divorce or a legal separation.
