Annulment Can Erase A Marriage

Some people would rather end their marriage by annulment than divorce. While annulments are rare compared to divorce, Georgia laws allow you to annul your marriage in limited circumstances, such as fraud.

At The Siemon Law Firm, our goal is to help you end your marriage in a way that is keeping with your goals. To talk to an attorney about annulment in Atlanta, call 770-888-5120 today to schedule a consultation with our experienced and compassionate divorce lawyers.

What Is Annulment?

Annulment is a legal procedure for declaring a marriage void and invalid from its inception. Unlike a divorce, an annulment does more than end a marriage. It treats the marriage as if it had never taken place.

Some people prefer an annulment for religious reasons. Others choose an annulment to avoid the stigma of divorce or to avoid the need to divide community property.

What Are The Grounds For Annulment In Georgia?

In Georgia, you can obtain an annulment if you were fraudulently induced into marriage. Examples of fraud include:

  • Your spouse lied about his or her ability to have children
  • Your spouse concealed a sexually transmitted disease or an addition to drugs or alcohol
  • Your spouse misled you about his or her religious faith
  • Your spouse lied about a prior marriage

In Georgia, you can only obtain an annulment if there are no children born of the marriage. If you have children, your marriage can only be ended by divorce.
