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.
