Can I get an annulment?

An annulment legally ends a marriage; it is as though the marriage never occurred.  In order to file for an annulment, certain criteria must be met.  These include:

·     Age – if one of the parties is not of legal age of consent

·     Mental incapacity – if a person is under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs at the time of the

      marriage ceremony

·     Incest – a marriage between blood relatives

·     Fraud – criminal history, sexually transmitted disease, cannot produce children

·     Force – cannot be coerced or put under duress

·     Religion – granted by a church

If you believe your marriage should be annulled, contact an experienced Orange County Family Law attorney to discuss if you meet the qualifications required for a California annulment.
