What Is An Annulment?

An annulment is a declaration made by the court that a marriage is void (not legally valid) or voidable (has become legally invalid due to some intervening event).

A marriage may be annulled for various reasons including the following :-

1. Either party was already married
2. Either party was under the age of 16 at the time of the marriage
3. The parties were closely related
4. Either party did not give valid consent
5. The parties were not male and female
6. The other party had a communicable form of a sexually transmitted disease at the time of marriage
7. The other party was pregnant by another person at the time of marriage and you had no knowledge of this
8. The marriage had not been consummated due to incapacity or willful refusal on the part of the other party.

This list is not exhaustive and our experienced family lawyers will be able to provide specialist advice should you need it.

Application must be made to annul the marriage by presenting a Nullity petition to the court. The process should take between 6 to 8 months if uncontested and you will be required to attend Court.

Your case may be more complicated and we would be happy to discuss your individual requirements and provide a costs estimate for your particular case. The law in this area is complex and you should seek the guidance of one of our expert family solicitors if you feel that you may have grounds for an annulment.
