An annulment is a judicial determination that a marriage was never valid. A judgment of nullity can significantly alter a party’s spousal support obligations and the way property is divided. Annulments are difficult to obtain because the grounds for annulment are narrowly defined by the Family Code. Typically, a party seeking an annulment must prove that the marriage was procured through fraud or that one of the parties lacked the physical or mental capacity to enter into the marriage.
If you believe that grounds exist for the annulment of your marriage, please contact the Law Office of Matthew J. Jensen immediately for a consultation. Your legal issue may be time sensitive.
