In rare cases, a California judge may grant an annulment if he or she finds that the marriage in question was invalid. Under California state law, an annulment is a judicial recognition that a valid marriage never existed — in other words, that the couple was never legally married. Keep in mind that certain marriages, such as those between blood relatives, or those containing more than two partners (i.e. bigamous unions) are never valid in the state of California.
Annulment is rather simple. In order to qualify for an annulment, you must establish that your marriage was never valid. A union in which you or your partner is under the age of consent is grounds for an annulment, as are unions in which one person was forced into marrying the other. A marriage in which you or your spouse is physically and/or mentally incapacitated may also be grounds for an annulment.
