Phoenix Annulment Attorney

If your recent marriage needs dissolution, is an annulment or a divorce more appropriate? People who need to dissolve a marriage sometimes believe that an annulment is the right solution in their situations, such as the following:

  • The marriage took place between people who were not eligible to marry: Parent and child, grandparent and grandchild, brother and sister (including half siblings), uncle and niece, aunt and nephew, minor without parental consent, or first cousins under age 65
  • The marriage was entered into on illegal grounds because one spouse was still married to someone else or one spouse was too young to marry without parental consent.
  • The marriage allegedly was based on fraud.
  • The marriage took place when one or both parties lacked capacity to agree to it, due to mental illness or being under the influence of a mind-altering substance.

Arizona statute 25-301 spells out the grounds for an annulment: "Superior courts may dissolve a marriage, and may adjudge a marriage to be null and void when the cause alleged constitutes an impediment rendering the marriage void."
