is notoriously ambiguous about defining when and why an annulment can
be granted. To determine if an annulment is right for you, you will need
to secure the help of an experienced Clearwater family law attorney. At
Tinny, Meyer & Piccarreto, P.A. we bring more than 35 years of legal experience to every case.

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
- 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.
