Annulments - or what happened in Vegas shouldn't have happened

A "dissolution of Marriage" and "legal Separation", can be obtained because of "incurable insanity" or "irreconcilable differences". Incurable insanity is easy to understand, irreconcilable differences is defined in legalese as "the existence of substantial marital problems which have so impaired the marriage relationship that the legitimate objects of matrimony have been destroyed and as to which there is no reasonable possibility of elimination, correction or resolution." In plain English - because I don't want to be married to this person anymore.

What Does an Annulment Do?

An "annulment" returns the parties to single status as if there had not been a marriage. Annulments - which are called "nullity of marriage", require very specific circumstances. An Annulment requires that the marriage was either void - meaning the parties could not legally get married because they were related or because one of them was already married, or voidable, meaning one (or both) of the parties was too young, a mistaken belief that one of the parties spouses was deceased, unsound mind, fraud, force, and physical incapacity.

Annulments are very fact specific, and very few situations qualify, so make sure you have an attorney who is experienced in guiding you down the correct path.
