Annulment vs Divorce
An annulment voids the marriage, and, in the eyes of the law, the marriage never happened. A short marriage is not automatically annulled, and changing one’s mind after marriage is not a basis for an annulment. This action has very specific requirements. Here are some examples of why a marriage would be annulled:
Annulment on public record
Both types of dissolution can be costly and time-consuming in the courtroom. And they both begin with one or both spouses filing a formal divorce or annulment petition with the court.
If both parties agree to end the marriage without numerous problems or debates about how to do so, either a divorce or an annulment can be simple and inexpensive.
