Brooklyn Annulment Attorneys
Annulling Marriages in Kings County
An annulment is completely different from a legal divorce or dissolution of marriage. New York has its own unique set of guidelines, procedures, and qualifications that govern the situations in which a couple can seek an annulment. Annulling a marriage makes it "null and void," meaning it can legally be stated that the marriage never existed. Generally, annulments are sought due to fraud or misrepresentation alleged by one or both spouses.
If you are seeking to dissolve your existing marriage, you may be eligible for an annulment.

What Situations Call for an Annulment?
Only circumstances deemed by statute can be considered for an annulment. Remember, an annulment would essentially erase the very existence of a marriage. This is a crucial legal distinction because you can legally go forward in life and state that you were never married if you successfully annul the marriage. This decision may have varying impact to some people for religious, personal, and other important reasons.
In New York, you can seek an annulment under specific grounds that include:
- One of the spouses was already legally married to another individual at the time of the marriage
- One of the spouses was under the age of consent
- Fraud or misrepresentation
- Duress or incapacitation
- Mental illness or incurable mental illness for five years
- Physical incapacity
