Can I Get an Annulment?
Many people find annulments more appealing than divorce because annulments render the marriage completely void. If a marriage is annulled, it is treated as though it never occurred. While the idea of nullifying a marriage is attractive, Florida only permits annulments under specific conditions:
- Either spouse was mentally impaired or incapacitated at the time of marriage
- Either spouse committed fraud by making misrepresentations to gain consent for marriage
- Parental consent was not given in the rare cases where it was required
- The parties are related by blood
- Either spouse is already married
These restricted conditions make annulments much rarer than divorce. Even if your circumstances enable you to pursue an annulment, it is often easier and less expensive to get a divorce.
