Annulment

Do you qualify to get an annulment in Florida? Call (800) 822-5170 today to speak to a divorce attorney in Fort Walton Beach.

Divorce is complicated, even when marriage hasn’t lasted very long. Perhaps you’ve been married for a short time and aren’t quite sure whether divorce or annulment is the best fit for you. Even if you suspect one may be a better fit than the other, it’s always best to get a second opinion and operate based on wise legal counsel.

Don’t go in alone. Schedule your confidential consultation with a Florida divorce lawyer today.

Annulment vs. Divorce

Many people view annulment as the ideal solution for couples who haven’t been married very long. However, there’s more to it than that.

Annulment differs from divorce in that it is very simple. Much like uncontested divorce, the process is streamlined and moves much faster than traditional divorce. However, annulment may not be for you if you and your spouse have any disagreement as to the reasons for ending your marriage, how your property and possessions are to be divvied up, or any other points of conflict regarding the terms of your divorce.

Qualifications for Getting Your Marriage Annulled in Florida

Because Florida is a no-fault state, you are not required to provide reasons beyond “irreconcilable differences” or a spouse’s mental incapacity when seeking a divorce. However, if you wish to have your marriage annulled, you must meet one of several specific criteria and thereby prove that your marriage is legally voidable.

To qualify for an annulment, at least one of the following must be true:

  • At least one spouse has recently become mentally incapacitated or handicapped
  • One spouse was already legally married to someone else when the marriage took place (bigamy)
  • The marriage occurred as a result of coercion, force, threats of violence, blackmail, etc.
  • At least one spouse was not of legal marrying age (under 18) when the marriage took place
  • At least one spouse failed to reveal or deliberately concealed unwillingness to have sexual intercourse after marriage
  • At least one spouse failed to reveal or deliberately concealed infertility or unwillingness to have children
