Annulments in Kansas
General provisions for annulments of marriages in Kansas are located in 23-2702, which is also numbered Statute 60-1602: Grounds for annulment.
The law states:
Here are the annulment grounds in Kansas:
Generally, an annulment of marriage in Kansas may be declared if the relationship was incestuous, there was incurable impotency at the time of marriage, there was a mental illness that restricted either party from understanding marriage, either party was incapacitated at the time of marriage, or the wife was pregnant by another person at the time of the marriage without the knowledge of the husband.
Kansas does not require either party to reside in the state for a certain period of time to file for annulment. Once the petition for annulment is filed, there is no mandatory waiting period before the court grants an annulment. However, the other spouse may challenge the annulment, which may result in a longer process.
The spouse filing for annulment is the petitioner; the other spouse is the respondent. The petition for annulment must stipulate the grounds for annulment and states the name, birth date, and address for both spouses as well as the date of the marriage, and the name and birth date for children, if any. The petition also states whether or not the petitioner needs temporary support for himself or herself or any children.
Additional forms must be completed to establish temporary orders for child support, spousal support, or other issues within annulments of marriages in Kansas.
At a hearing the petitioner explains the reasons the marriage should be annulled. If the court accepts the argument, the judge signs an order annulling the marriage.
