What is an Annulment?

Post  Admin on Mon Sep 21, 2009 11:37 am

An annulment is a court process to declare that the parties were never legally married to begin with, because at the time of the marriage something was so wrong that no legal relationship could be established by marriage. The annulment decree will specify the legal reason why the marriage was void from the beginning, and will also specify everything else like child custody, parent-child access (visitation), child support, division of property and debt, Spousal maintenance (alimony) and name change of either party if requested.

To get a marriage annulled in the State of Arizona, you must have legal grounds. Annulments are not based on time. You could be married only one day and have to seek a divorce because you do not qualify for an annulment.

In order to get an annulment in Arizona, there must have been something called an impediment that renders the marriage void. Ariz.Rev.Stat. §25-301. “Void” as used in this statute includes “voidable” and grounds for annulment are not limited to those specified by Ariz.Rev.Stat. §25-101.
