Marriage Annulments

Maitland Annulment Lawyers Help Void Invalid Marriages

Many people tend to forget that marriage arises out of contract law. When you get married you enter into a contract with your spouse. The law does not allow people to enter into a marriage contract when they are otherwise legally incapable of making such a contract. The best example would be a bigamist marriage. If a person is already married, that person no longer has the capacity to enter into a new marriage contract until the first marriage is dissolved by either death or divorce.

As laws have been changed to make divorce or dissolution of marriage easier to obtain, it has become unnecessary in many cases to go through the process of annulling a marriage. However, if you have questions, contact The Troum Law Firm, P.A. to speak to a knowledgeable family law attorney about your situation.

What Is an Annulment of Marriage?

An annulment of the marriage is saying that the marriage never existed from its very beginning. A dissolution of marriage or divorce is a recognition that at one time there was a lawful marriage contract but that the contract has been dissolved by law.

Causes for seeking an annulment include:

  • Incestuous marriages or those occurring between close blood relatives
  • Bigamous relationships
  • Mental illness
  • Fraud or forced consent
  • Underage marriages without parental consent
  • The physical inability to consummate a marriage

A person seeking annulment of a marriage is entitled to the same types of support and rights that a person seeking a divorce would be entitled to receive.
