Can I get an annulment in Virginia?
Written by our divorce lawyers in Manassas
Unlike a divorce, which dissolves a valid marriage, an annulment is a legal decree that a marriage is void.
Annulments are granted only in limited circumstances such as a marriage entered into because of fraud, duress, or coercion.
For more than 30 years our divorce lawyers in Manassas have been helping individuals annul their marriages in Prince William, Manassas Park, Gainesville, Haymarket, Woodbridge, Lake Ridge, Dumfries, Bristow, Warrenton, Centreville, Fairfax, Stafford, Chantilly, Leesburg, Ashburn, Sterling, Herndon, Reston, Alexandria, Annandale, Arlington, and throughout Northern Virginia.
In order to qualify for an annulment in Virginia, one of three conditions must be met:
• There must have been a defect in the marriage.
• The marriage must have involved fraud of some kind.
• One of the parties must have withheld crucial information from the other party.
Annulments are not as easy to obtain as people imagine and cannot be granted merely because the marriage did not last long, or because someone in the marriage changed religions.
