What is an Annulment?

An Annulment happens when a judge declares that a marriage is legally void.

This can occur when either party feels that they have been tricked, forced, or pressured to get married to each other against their will.

Key Points

  • There is generally no set period of time when it comes to obtaining an annulment. The final decision will depend on the judge.
  • It is, however, practical to seek an annulment sooner rather than later so as to carry on with your life and find your ideal partner.
  • Annulment applies to a marriage that is valid until otherwise declared by the court as annulled.
