ANNULMENT
 

     An annulment is available when a marriage is invalid from its intended inception. Generally, these marriages are between persons unable to contract, unwilling to contract, or fraudulently induced to contract. However, where a marriage is invalid because of fraud, duress or non-age AND a child is born or is to be born as a result of the union, annulment is not an option.

          A decree of annulment has the effect of returning the parties to their status immediately prior to “marriage”. In Georgia , annulment of marriages can only be granted by the superior courts. Parties may chose annulment versus divorce for a variety of reasons including:

  • Personal religious beliefs
  • Misrepresentation entering into marriage
  • Avoidance of alimony and property division (particular to divorce)
