San Diego Annulment Attorneys
Ending Your Partnership with Reputable Legal Counsel
Coming to the decision that it is time to end your marriage can be extremely overwhelming and frightening. When you begin looking into your options, you will find that there are two primary ways to terminate your marriage, a divorce (dissolution of marriage), or an annulment (nullity of marriage).
The criteria necessary for an annulment is quite different from that of a traditional divorce as your aim is to prove to the court that your partnership either is invalid or was invalid at the time of your marriage. If you are looking into filing for an annulment, you should speak with a legal representative that has a strong foundation in family law. At Fair Cadora, APC, our San Diego divorce lawyers have over 20 years combined experience handling these cases and can provide you with the knowledge and guidance you deserve.

Some of the legal justifications for an annulment include:
Unsound mind: If one party was unable to understand the obligations of entering into the marriage or domestic partnership, there may be grounds for an annulment.
Fraud/Deception: Cases in which one party entered the marriage by providing false information or purposefully deceived their partner may be grounds for an annulment.
Bigamy: If one party is already married or is in a domestic partnership with someone outside of the marriage, the marriage can be annulled.
Age/Consent: In the state of California, the required age for consent for marriage without parental consent is 18. If one party was under age when entering into a marriage, the partnership can be annulled.
Legitimizing Your Claim
The party that files for the annulment is required to provide evidence that showcases the legal justification as to why the marriage or domestic partnership should be annulled. Unlike a divorce or legal separation, there is a statute of limitations placed upon annulments, which is why it is extremely important to speak to a family law attorney prior to filling your claim. This isn’t a situation you should handle on your own, contact one of our San Diego divorce attorneys at Fair Cadora, APC, and let us handle your case.
