How Can a Marriage be Annulled?

Although every state has its own regulations and laws with regard to marriage annulment and divorce, there are some laws that still apply to the whole country. It is important to note that an annulment can be initiated by any party who is married. In order for an annulment to be approved by the Court, the individual who is initiating it needs to prove that there are indeed grounds for it. The marriage will only be annulled when the court decides that there is some legal basis to these grounds. Some of the grounds for an annulment of a marriage include the following:

  • Forced consent: This is when one party was being forced into the marriage through threat or duress.
  • Mental illness: If either party had some form of mental illness during the marriage, then it is also grounds for annulment.
  • Bigamy: This is a case when either married party was already in another marriage during the time of their marriage.
  • Incestual Relations: Marriages that involve incestual relations are grounds for annulment.
  • Forced Consent: Either party agreed to get married because of the misrepresentations by the other party.
