Understanding Annulment in California

In California, an annulment is a legal procedure that declares a marriage null and void. It is as if it never existed. This is different from a divorce, which legally ends a valid marriage. Annulments are granted under specific conditions that prove the marriage was invalid from the start. It’s essential to understand whether your marriage qualifies for this unique form of dissolution.

Eligibility Criteria for Annulment

To be eligible for an annulment in California, your marriage must meet certain legally defined criteria, including:

  • Incest: Marriages between close blood relatives are prohibited.
  • Bigamy: If one spouse is already legally married, the subsequent marriage is invalid.
  • Underage Marriage: If a spouse was below the legal age of consent at the time of marriage.
  • Unsound Mind: Incapacity of one or both parties to comprehend the responsibilities and nature of marriage.
  • Fraud: Deception or misrepresentation by one spouse that was crucial to gaining the other’s consent.
  • Coercion: Marriage entered into under duress or force.
