Seeking an Annulment in Michigan
An annulment is a unique type of matrimonial action which is different
from divorce. While a divorce recognizes that a marriage took place and
terminates it, an annulment essentially acts as if the divorce never happened.
There are very specific conditions which must apply to your situation
to qualify for an annulment, which we can go over with you to see if this
is the right action for you.
You may qualify for an annulment if:
- You or your spouse was under the age of 18 when you got married
- Mental illness or incapacitation prevented either spouse from consenting
to the marriage
- There is proof of fraud, false pretenses, or force which led to the marriage
- One spouse has been incapable of consummating the marriage
