Some people seek annulment for religious reasons, while others do because they are philosophically opposed to divorce. While annulments are rare and are only granted if specific conditions are met, they are an alternative to divorce in Arizona in some situations.
At the law firm of Singer Pistiner, P.C., in Scottsdale, Arizona, our lawyers assist clients who are seeking an annulment. We offer a free initial consultation to explain annulment and determine if it may be the right solution for you.
What Is Annulment?
When a marriage is dissolved by annulment, it is as if the marriage never took place. In Arizona, courts may grant you an annulment in the following circumstances:
- The marriage was based on fraud or misrepresentation
- The couple was not eligible for marriage (for example, because they were brother and sister, first cousins, already married or not old enough)
- One or both of the parties lacked the capacity to get married (for example, because they were under the influence of mind-altering drugs)
- One or both of the parties were forced into marriage
When a marriage is dissolved by annulment, it is made null and void retroactive to the date of the marriage.
