Annulment

Dissolving a Marriage

In some rare circumstances a marriage can be dissolved to such an extent that it is deemed to never have existed in the first place. Annulment provides parties with an option that effectively nullifies their marriage. To find out whether you or your spouse may qualify for an annulment, call an experienced Minnesota licensed family and divorce law attorney today.

Effects of an Annulment

Because an annulment means that the marriage was void, a party considering an annulment should be aware of the consequences. Where a marriage is annulled, a spouse would not be entitled to the same rights a divorcing spouse would be entitled. For example you would be denied the right to request spousal maintenance, and would have no interest in your ex spouses' pension and retirement. An annulment might also effect the division of household goods, furnishings and other property purchased during the marriage.
