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. An annulment differs from a divorce in that, with an annulment, 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.
Do I Qualify for an Annulment?
Annulment is rather simple. In order to qualify for an annulment, you must establish that your marriage was never valid.
Several qualifications for annulment could include:
- A union in which you or your partner is under the age of consent
- A union in which one person was forced into marrying the other
- A union in which you or your spouse is physically and/or mentally incapacitated
