Representation for Annulments in MA

Annulment vs. Divorce

An annulment is declaring that a marriage never legally existed, while divorce is bringing the marriage to an end. In a number of ways, an annulment could be a more beneficial and effective solution, but you must meet the legal requirements prior to going to court. With more than 20 years of legal experience, our Framingham family law attorneys are committed to helping you being a new chapter of your life.

What are the Legal Grounds for Annulment?

If your marriage was not verified from the date of marriage, you may be able to have your marriage annulled. Some couples prefer an annulment compared to a divorce for religious or social reasons. However, not everybody can obtain an annulment in Massachusetts family court.

The following are the legal ground you must meet in order to qualify for an annulment:

  • Marriage was fraudulent
  • Marriage occurred under duress
  • Couple related by blood
  • One or both spouse was already married
  • One party lacked the capacity to give their consent
  • Purpose of marriage is to obtain green card or citizenship
  • One party was intoxicated
  • One spouse was under 18
  • One spouse was mentally disabled at the time of marriage

If one spouse hid important information from the other after the marriage went through, you have grounds for annulment. Information such as their criminal history, medical history (STDs), if they are pregnant, or if they aren’t able to have children are acceptable.
