What’s the Difference Between Annulment and Divorce?
The main difference between annulment and divorce is that, while an annulment dissolves a marriage just like a divorce does, it treats the marriage as if it never happened. Because of this, many people seek annulments for religious reasons. on The other hand, the divorce process is for cases where the marriage was valid, but must now be dissolved.
Annulments typically happen within a few weeks of the the wedding and, therefore, don’t involve matters like property or debt division and child custody. Divorce is commonly used as a means to end long-term marriages that include such matters.
What Are the Requirements for Getting an Annulment in Florida?
Getting an annulment in the state of Florida doesn’t require that you follow a certain set of procedures, but it does require that you offer proof of any of the following:
