You've found yourself in a marriage that isn't working, and it's of short term duration, and you've thought about divorce, or annulment, or whatever. You want to get out of this. Hello, I'm Robert Todd, and I'm here to answer the question, How to annul a marriage? Well, generally speaking, the laws of annulment are like the laws of divorce, in that they vary in all fifty states, and you're going to have to check the state in which you were married, to see whether you're looking at annulment or divorce, but generally speaking, don't confuse annulment with a short term marriage, versus divorce. Annulment has to do with the fact that the parties were not really, even legally able to get married. For example, one of the best examples, is the one party is not old enough. Let's say the marriage in that state requires an individual to be eighteen, and they're fifteen, and they don't get their parent's consent, or their guardian's consent. That marriage can be annulled, the party was just not old enough. Another matter or example, would be where one of the parties is still married to another party, and they obviously can't get married twice. You can only get married once, so you have to have a divorce, or an extinguishment of the other marriage, before you can get married in this state, so if you have any questions about that, you might check your local County Clerk's office, for some information, regarding the circumstances, and forms necessary to obtain an annulment, and if you don't understand them, seek the services of a family lawyer, that specializes in that area. It will be money well spent. I'm Robert Todd, and thank you for watching.
