What is an Annulment?
When two spouses marry each other, there is a valid marriage. Sometimes, because of a legal defect, the marriage is subject to annulment. If the defect is timely challenged in court, the marriage is “voidable”.
What is an example of a voidable marriage?
The most important element in these examples is that as soon as the defect was noted, there was no further cohabitation. Also, there must be a timely request for the annulment from the court. If the request is not timely, then the spouses must divorce each other.
Annulments are not subject to the normal 90-day waiting period for a divorce.
