In some instances, however, one person might have held back critical details of their life before getting into the marriage. They might have said or done things to help induce somebody into marrying that was not true. Or, in some instances, it might be what they didn’t tell the person they were about to marry.
In these cases, an annulment might be a possibility for some. An annulment can oftentimes be obtained where a party has been fraudulently induced into getting married. If an annulment is obtained, it essentially means that the marriage did not take place versus a divorce where the marriage is dissolved.
Obviously, the ability to get an annulment is fact-specific. The laws in different states can vary as well. Thus, it’s important to speak with an attorney who is licensed and competent to practice law in your state.
Some examples of basic fact patterns where an annulment might be possible include:
- Situations where a party is not able to have kids and does not tell their spouse.
- It could include scenarios where a party is impotent and does not tell their spouse.
- It might be a case where a party enters a marriage not out of love, but perhaps out of financial gain.
- It could be a situation where the party has a sexually transmitted disease before the marriage and does not tell their spouse.
- It could be a situation where a party has a preference for the opposite sex but does not disclose that before marriage.
These are just some examples of fact situations that might involve a factual basis for an annulment. Of course, other fact patterns may give rise to a basis for an annulment as well. Because every situation is fact-specific, and the laws can vary, it is critical to speak to an attorney in your state.
