What is a Marriage Annulment?
An annulment is a way to end a marriage, similar to divorce or dissolving a civil partnership. To get a marriage annulled, there are certain criteria that must be met to establish that the marriage is not legally valid or is defective. There are a multitude of reasons why you may not have a valid marriage, such as if one or both of you were under the age of 16 or if one of you were already married or in a civil partnership.
Due to the specific grounds on which a marriage can be annulled, it is essential that you do not attempt an annulment petition without the assistance of a lawyer.
It is important to note that at the conclusion of a nullity petition, if successful, the court will still have the power to deal with financial issues arising from the marriage.
