The Difference Between Annulment & Divorce

Like a divorce, an annulment ends a marriage, leaving both spouses free to marry again. However, an annulment goes even further than a divorce by voiding a marriage. By having the marriage annulled, it’s as if it never happened.

How to Qualify for Annulment

Your marriage can be annulled if it’s voidable—it was valid, but should now be voided—or if it’s already void, which means your marriage wasn’t legal to begin with.

You can prove your marriage is voidable using any of the following arguments:

  • One spouse married the other under false pretenses
  • One spouse was coerced or forced into the marriage
  • One spouse lacked the ability to consent to the marriage
  • One spouse is impotent, preventing the couple from consummating

You can show that your marriage is void, or was always invalid, if your situation involves:

  • Incest
  • Underage consent
  • Bigamy

If your marriage is void, you may be able to get either an annulment or a divorce based on your state’s laws.

Benefits of Annulment

While proving the grounds for an annulment can be challenging since they’re more specific, if you’re able to be granted an annulment, there are definite benefits.

Annulment benefits include:

  • Fewer issues to deal with than in a divorce (no property division)
  • Unaffected legitimacy of your children
  • Unaffected paternity (the husband will always be the presumed father of any children had during marriage)

Divorces can also be lengthy, especially if the separating couple can’t agree on dividing property or deciding who receives custody of their children. Annulments make marriages appear as if they never happened, so there are no further issues for you and your spouse to discuss. Our Queens annulment attorneys have helped countless couples choose this alternative option and can help determine if it works for you, too.
