Definition: A legal order that dissolves a marriage by declaring that it was never valid.
Marriage annulment (also called nullity of marriage) voids the marriage as if it never took place. An annulment means that the court declares that your marriage is not legally valid. There are various grounds for annulment, with fraud being the most often used grounds. To annul a marriage, the fraud allegation must go to the essence of the relationship.
Grounds for a Civil Annulment :
- Mental Insanity
- Under the age of legal consent
- Marriage not consummated
- Incapacity due to drugs or alcohol
