Eugene Annulment Attorneys
Experienced, Compassionate Legal Help When You Need It Most
While most couples looking to end their marriage seek a divorce, an annulment can be a more effective way to end a marriage that should never have taken place. A divorce dissolves the marital contract, ending that tie between spouses so that each can go on with their lives independently. An annulment, however, renders the marriage itself null and void, which, legally speaking, should make it as if the marriage never happened.
An annulment can be a better option for some couples looking to put an end to their relationship, however, not everyone qualifies. If you are interested in obtaining an annulment, we encourage you to reach out to our experienced team so we can assess your situation and, if applicable, guide you through the annulment process.

Who Qualifies for an Annulment?
As previously stated, annulments aren’t as easy to obtain as they may seem. An annulment is only permitted if the marriage had some reason for being null in the first place.
A couple may qualify for an annulment if one of the following is true:
- Either spouse perpetrated fraud through their marriage
- One or both parties were not of sound mind when the marriage occurred
- One party has an incurable physical incapacity, such as impotence
- One party was already married at the time the marriage took place
- One party was forced into the marriage, physically or by other means
- One party was under the legal age of consent (18 years old) when the marriage took place
- The couple is related by blood
