Helping Individuals Seeking Annulments

Last updated on August 30, 2023

Marriages end for various reasons and, for some people, divorce is not the best option. For individuals who wish to end a marriage, but who, for religious or other personal reasons, do not want to go through the formal divorce process, annulment may be a more attractive alternative.

A traditional divorce is often the preferred legal process to end a marriage. However, some people may prefer to end a marriage through annulment that essentially treats a marriage as if never happened. If you are contemplating ending your marriage, it is wise to learn more about the annulment process.

Choosing Annulment Versus Divorce

If you are interested in learning more about annulment, the attorneys at Deitch & Perone, P.C., can answer your questions and help you determine if an annulment is appropriate in your specific situation.

Not every marriage can be annulled. In fact, to be granted an annulment, your marriage must qualify under one of the following four grounds:

  1. Misrepresentation or fraud
  2. Concealment
  3. Failure to consummate marriage
  4. Misunderstanding

Our attorneys are here to provide the legal representation and advocacy you need during this difficult time. We always represent your best interests and work to ensure that your short- and long-term financial and personal best interests are furthered.
