Eligibility for Annulment

If you have been married a short amount of time and find that your marriage is not working, you may be considering an annulment opposed to a divorce. Before you make a final decision, you should understand if you qualify for an annulment as there are laws governing this family law legal process.

Based on what state you reside in, the laws for annulment can vary. In the state of North Carolina, for example, there are very few circumstances under which a couple will actually qualify for an annulment.

Many people are under the assumption that the length of a marriage is automatic grounds for an annulment, but this is not always the case. Since an annulment means that your marriage will be voided, meaning it never existed in the first place, the state of North Carolina is strict when granting or denying annulments.

In order to learn if you meet the state's eligibility requirements, contact Hopper, Hopper & Mulligan, PLLC now to set up a time to speak with one of our Raleigh family law attorneys. We can listen to your side of the story and let you know if annulment is right for you.

Michael Hopper was straight-forward, honest and “spot-on”...
Attorney Michael Hopper was straight-forward, honest and “spot-on” when handling my Chapter 7 Bankruptcy filing. With his guidance and leadership, I was organized, prepared and unintimidated by the process. More than a year after my case was discharged, Mr. Hopper still personally responded to a couple of “quick questions”. I highly recommend Michael Hopper to anyone seeking quality legal representation.
