How do I get an annulment
Oftentimes, people mistakenly believe that civil annulment allows a newlywed couple to change their mind and legally reverse their marriage. This is not the case. I will explain who might be eligible for annulment under Nevada law. I have considerable experience representing clients, throughout the Las Vegas Valley, Summerlin, Green Valley, and Henderson. in a full range of family law matters. I can help you pursue an annulment.
The grounds for an annulment in Nevada are:
- Fraud — Misrepresentation of a material fact can be grounds for annulment. This can include lying about the ability to parent children or consummate the marriage.
- Age or mental capacity — If one party was underage at the time of the marriage or lacked the requisite mental state to make such a commitment, an annulment might be possible.
- Duress — When someone is forced or threatened into getting married, that does not constitute legal consent, and the marriage can be invalidated.
- Bigamy — If it is discovered that one spouse was already married when the wedding occurred, that is grounds for annulment even if the spouse was not aware of that fact.
I am experienced in all types of marital litigation and can advise you on your options for annulling your union.
After a detailed review of your situation, I can help determine the likelihood of success for an annulment petition. Unlike divorce, which ends a marriage, annulment is a determination that a legitimate marriage never existed. Annulment does not affect issues relating to child support or parentage. I will provide advice and advocacy if annulment is right for you.
