Marriage Annulment Family Law Attorneys in Portland
Experienced & Skilled Legal Counsel
While most people feel a divorce is enough to mark the end of their marriage, some instances require something a little more encompassing and permanent. In cases which may require a marriage to be marked completely null and void, an annulment is the most viable option. While a divorce acknowledges a marriage once existed between the two parties, an annulment erases the marriage from the legal realm as if it never existed at all.
There are several instances in which an annulment can take place, including but not limited to:
- The couple is related by blood
- One party was already married to another, resulting in bigamy
- One party was underage at the time of marriage
- One or both parties were not of sound mind during the marriage
- One party was forced into the marriage
- Either spouse perpetrated fraud--for example, marrying for a green card
- One party has an incurable physical incapacity, such as impotence
As you can see, there are very specific instances which must occur in order to qualify for the strict stipulations of an annulment--the regular contentions which may take place in a marriage are not enough to constitute completely erasing the union from existence.
