Marriage Annulment in South Jordan, Utah
Nullify Your Marriage
An annulment is the process of nullifying an original marriage contract. There are very specific requirements you must meet in order to qualify for an annulment rather than a divorce.
If you want to file for an annulment in Utah, you will need an experienced family lawyer who can guide you through the process. At Carr | Woodall, our annulment attorneys in South Jordan have extensive experience helping people successfully annul their marriages. We have handled many of these cases and look forward to putting our experience to work for you.
How to Qualify for an Annulment
Many people seek an annulment because it is a faster, simpler, and more affordable process than divorce. However, few marriages actually qualify for an annulment, as the requirements are quite stringent.
You may qualify for an annulment if:
- You married a person who was already married
- One person was below the legal age to enter into a marriage contract at the time of the marriage
- One or both parties were not of sound mind or were under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol at the time of the marriage
- One or both partners in the marriage are unable to perform their marital duties
Property Division, Support & Custody after Annulment
It is important to note that even if your marriage is annulled, you may still be liable for any and all financial obligations or debts that were acquired during your marriage. If the marriage resulted in children, the court is likely to include child custody and child support provisions.
