Arizona Annulment Questions & Answers

Annulment is a court process to declare that the parties were never legally married to begin with, because at the time of the marriage something was wrong so that no legal relationship could be established by marriage.

What is the legal effect of an Annulment?

The general effect of an annulment is to put the parties to the marriage in the same position that they would have been had they never married.

What are the requirements for obtaining an Annulment?

In order for the Court to grant an annulment of a marriage, the Court must be persuaded that sufficient grounds for an annulment exist. Generally, the basis for granting an annulment of a marriage is fraud, inability to consummate the marriage, that a party to the marriage is a bigamist, has concealed a criminal past or concealed the fact of a communicable disease or other grounds which the Court recognizes as a valid basis for the granting of an annulment.

Why file for an Annulment?

Filing for an annulment of marriage, as opposed to filing for divorce, is normally done for financial or religious reasons.

What other issues can be decided in an Annulment?
