Annulment Attorney in Roswell & Alpharetta
An annulment is a legal proceeding that essentially erases a marriage from the books. After a marriage is annulled, it is as if it never happened from a legal standpoint.
Issues like alimony and distribution of property are non-factors in the case of an annulment.
While this is a much cleaner break than a divorce, there are very specific and strict requirements in order to have an annulment issued.
In the state of Georgia, a marriage has to have been entered into fraudulently in order to have it annulled. While there are many different possible ways that a marriage could be deemed a fraud, the following are some of the most common.
- Misrepresentation of sexual preference
- Misrepresentation of financial situation
- Significant lies about the background of one of the parties
- Lies about religious beliefs
- Any other fraud that would have made the other party not proceed with the marriage
Annulments are not always easy to obtain because it must somehow be proven that the fraud existed prior to the marriage taking place.
It is, however, worth pursuing an annulment if you have learned information that causes you to want out of the marriage immediately.
Working with an experienced attorney like Elyssa Williams will give your annulment argument a better chance of success.
