If you are deciding to dissolve your marriage, litigated divorce may seem like the only answer. While this is one of the most common forms of dissolution, there are other methods out there which may be more appropriate. An annulment may be a legal way for you to end your marriage, depending on the circumstances. If you are in Orange County, our Ladera Ranch divorce mediation team at OC Divorce Mediation Center can help you decide.
In order to file, you will have to prove that you meet the grounds or qualifications. With more than 45 years of combined experience, we are extremely familiar with the criteria required in California. Typically, you will have to file within about four years of the time you were married.
While a divorce is used to separate a valid marriage, the purpose of an annulment is to prove that the marriage was never valid and should not have happened. Whether you feel that you were too young when you got married or that there was a lack of consent, we can help you pursue an annulment. There are a variety of benefits to choosing annulment if it is appropriate for your unique situation.
