How to end an invalid marriage
What is Annulment?
Annulment is the legal procedure taken to end an invalid marriage, in other words—to end a marriage that never should have been allowed to take place. Courts grant annulments in limited situations and according to Wisconsin Statute §767.313, grounds for granting one include a case where a party lacked consent, where a party was forced into the marriage, where the marriage was entered into based on fraud, where a party lacked the physical capacity to consummate, or the marriage was prohibited by the laws of this state, or the party was still a minor. While annulment actions may be difficult and daunting, they are not impossible. It is important to seek advice from a family law attorney who can look at the facts of your situation and apply them to the statute to determine if your case will be successful.
