Does Your Marriage Qualify?

 

An annulment and divorce are different.  The annulment declares that the marriage is void.  In the eyes of the law, an annulled marriage never really existed.


The party seeking to have a marriage annulled in Alabama is responsible for proving that the marriage is invalid.  Case law in Alabama holds that a marriage can be annulled if there has been a fraud that goes to the "essence of the marriage relations.  For instance, if a spouse concealed the intent not to have sexual relations with the other spouse after marriage or to live separately, then this would be grounds for an annulment because a sexual relationship and living together are central to marriage.


Other examples of marriages that can be annulled are those involving underage spouse; marriage where one spouse has concealed a sexually transmitted disease; and marriage where one spouse has been forced, through duress to marry.
