An annulment is a legal process that ends a marriage as if it never took place, declaring it invalid and void. It is different from a divorce, which legally dissolves a valid marriage. Annulments are typically granted if a marriage was not legally valid to begin with, such as when a person was underage, or if the marriage was entered into under duress.
At the Law Office of Brett H. Pritchard, our experienced annulment attorneys can help you understand your rights and options when it comes to annulment. We understand the sensitive nature of annulment cases and can provide you with the legal guidance and support you need to pursue your case.

To secure an annulment, you must meet one of the following conditions:
- One or both parties were younger than 18 at the time of marriage
- One or both parties were under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of marriage
- The marriage occurred under fraudulent circumstances, or one of the spouses was coerced into the marriage
- One spouse is permanently impotent, and the other spouse wasn't aware at the time of marriage
- One or both parties lacked the mental capacity to consent to marriage
- One spouse had a divorce finalized within 30 days before the marriage, and the other spouse wasn't aware
