California state info for marriage annulment
Many couples realize after getting married that it wasn’t the right decision for them. However, not everyone has to go through a divorce to reverse the decision.
If you were involved in a “sham marriage” or an accidental marriage, you may be able to get an annulment.
This is often the easiest and fastest way to dissolve a marriage, but an annulment can only be successfully filed for under certain circumstances.
An annulment can only be granted if you can prove that your marriage should legally be considered null and void.
You may be able to have your marriage annulled if:
- You found out that you and your spouse are blood related, but had no prior knowledge of this before getting married
- Your partner was already married to someone else at the time of your marriage, and you had no idea that your new spouse was still legally married to someone else
- You were forced or threatened into the marriage
- Your spouse misled you about an important fact about him or herself, like he/she is sterile and promised you children, when in fact he/she biologically cannot have children.
