Call 770-609-1247 to speak with an Atlanta Annulment Attorney
An annulment is different than a divorce. In short, an annulment invalidates the marriage so that it never existed, while a divorce dissolves it. However, annulments are not common in Georgia, because the criteria the state has in place is very strict for allowing them.
In an annulment, the final decree returns both parties to their pre-marital state. That means that all property and debt will be returned to the person it belonged to prior to the marriage. For all intents and purposes, an annulment states that the marriage never existed.
You may receive an annulment if:
– You are your spouse are related as follows: parent/child, stepchild; grandparent/grandchild; aunt/nephew; uncle/niece; brother/sister.
– One party did not have the mental capacity to enter the marital contract
– One party was under 16 at the time of marriage
– One party was forced or fraudulently induced to enter the marriage
– Your spouse was married to another living spouse when you entered into the marriage
Even if one of the above holds true, you will not be granted an annulment if there are children born of the marriage.
