Destin Annulment Attorneys
Call The Virga Law Firm to Discuss Your Annulment
Because Florida law does not specifically address annulment of marriage, it tends to be more complicated and rare than divorce. The appellate courts have set “grounds” for annulment because the laws do not specify requirements, but they are very specific and have two categories: “void” marriages and “voidable” marriage.
A void marriage is one that was invalid from the beginning, while a voidable marriage is one that is not necessarily immediately invalid but can still be annulled.
At The Virga Law Firm, we know the required grounds for annulment and are prepared to help you determine if your marriage qualifies. Our Destin annulment lawyers can handle the legal process of annulment for you, so you can move past this unfortunate event as smoothly as possible.
Unfortunately, annulments tend to be more difficult and costly than a divorce. In some cases, you can file for an annulment and, once in court, the judge can deny it. It is imperative that you have of our annulment attorneys on your side to ensure you have the best chance possible of getting your annulment granted.
Valid grounds for annulment in Florida include:
- Fraudulent marriage: If one or both spouses entered the marriage as a “joke,” or if one or both spouses used fraudulent information or misrepresentation to trick the other into marriage.
- Duress: If one spouse uses extreme force or coercion against the other.
- Impotence: If one spouse is not aware that the other is unable to procreate.
- Bigamy or incest: If one spouse is legally married to one or more others at the time of the marriage, or if the couple is closely related by blood.

- Underage: If one or both spouses is under age and did not have parental consent at the time of marriage.
