Annulment of Marriage – Marriage Solicitors
Annulment of marriage is a legal step towards declaring the marriage as void or null (meaning it’s a legal process of declaring marriage as invalid under the UK Jurisdiction mostly applicable in England and Wales). Furthermore, an annulment can declare marriage as ‘voidable marriage’ (legally valid but can be cancelled on specific grounds, i.e. forced marriage).
Hence, besides divorce, it’s another way of legally ending your marriage, especially when one of the former spouses disagrees with getting a divorce.
What is the criteria to meet in order to apply for Annulment in the UK?
To apply for annulment in the UK, it is vital to meet the following residency criteria:
- You must be living in Wales or England for at least a year
- England or Wales is your permanent home (attach a domicile) for at least 6-months or so
Remember: Unlike getting a divorce, you can apply for annulment during the first year or any time after getting married. Nevertheless, you must state the prove of delay if you’d happened to apply after years.
