Temecula Annulment Attorney

Using Annulment to Void Marriage

When most people get married, they hope it will be the next step in a loving relationship that will last the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, when one spouse does not enter the marriage with honest intentions, it leaves the other person searching for answers.

At The Law Offices of John G. McGill, Jr., we work with individuals throughout Southern California to help them get annulments. Because an annulment is a technical procedure that essentially erases the fact that you were married, it is a complex area of law. With more than 30 years of family law experience, our Temecula annulment lawyer can work with you to legally annul your marriage.

Requirements for a Marriage Annulment

Because an annulment reverses a legal process that has already taken place, there are complex regulations governing situations in which a person can or cannot get an annulment. Two major categories include incapacity and fraud:

  • Incapacity: If one spouse does not have the capacity to be married, the marriage can be annulled. If a person is too young to be legally married, the marriage can be voided. A person who is mentally unstable would be considered to have an incapacity that could void the marriage. A person can also have a legal incapacity that would void the marriage. If someone is already married and gets married again, the second marriage is void.
  • Fraud: If someone enters a marriage fraudulently, such as without the intention to be married, that can void the marriage. If one spouse refused to live together as a married couple after the wedding, that would be considered fraudulent and could annul the marriage.
