Annulment

Skilled Guidance from Trusted Phoenix Annulment Lawyer

In order to annul a marriage, under Arizona law, there must be an allegation that the marriage suffers from an impediment that renders it null and void. While a divorce dissolves a valid marriage, an annulment means that the marriage was never valid from inception, as though it never took place. In order to meet the burden of proving the impediment, there is usually a need to establish some sort of fraud.

The jurisdictional requirements and procedure for obtaining an annulment are the same those for a dissolution of marriage case, including the dividing of property.

Practically speaking, an annulment usually occurs in a marriage of very short duration, think Brittany Spears.
