Annulment Attorney in Granite Bay

Qualifications for an Annulment in California

When a marriage or domestic partnership does not meet certain legal requirements, an annulment may be an option. An annulment can have the same effect that a non-union would, where the marriage or domestic partnership never existed. In the eyes of the law, an annulment is different than a divorce in that a divorced couple was once legally married. Our divorce attorneys at Myers Family Law are experienced in representing clients who are seeking an annulment.

There are certain qualifications that must be present in order for the court to annul a marriage or domestic partnership.

  • Some reasons an annulment would be permissible in court would be:
  • One or both spouses misrepresented themselves or the marriage was under false pretenses
  • One or both spouses were legally under age and were married without parental consent
  • One or both spouses were already married or in a domestic partnership
  • One or both spouses were forced into the marriage or domestic partnership
  • Spouses were closely related by blood
