Qualifying for an Annulment

Are you curious about whether you qualify for an annulment? While each state has its own laws regarding annulment, they are based on some of the same principles. Unlike a religious annulment which must be granted by the church, a civil annulment is a legal procedure that is overseen by a state's government. A civil annulment treats your divorce as though it never happened, but it also requires division of property and assets, just as in a regular divorce case.

If you want to obtain an annulment, you will need to show that your marriage should never have taken place. You can do this by proving concealment, misunderstanding, misrepresentation, fraud and/or refusal. In most cases, the court will need to see that your spouse purposefully hid something from you that seriously affects the marriage before granting an annulment. Examples of this include the inability to have children, a severe addiction, being underage or having a felony conviction. If you are wondering what is the best way to terminate your marriage in North Carolina, consult a Raleigh family lawyer today by contacting Hopper, Hopper & Mulligan, PLLC. We will review the circumstances surrounding your marriage and advise you of the best course of action for your individual situation.

They simply rock!...
All the people at Hopper Law Firm PLLC are super nice. No fun going to see a lawyer, but they all helped make the whole process easier, plus got a speeding ticket during the divorce, so I've had the "pleasure" of working with both Kevin and Brad. They simply rock!
