Annulment Attorney Serving El Paso, Midland & Odessa
In Texas, a marriage can be voidable by a court issued annulment. Annulments make it so that the divorce never existed. Annulments can only be issued in certain circumstances and can be hard to acquire.
If you have made the decision to file for an annulment, it is important that you consult with a family law attorney. When working with our law firm, you will have an experienced legal team who has extensive litigation experience and that will use that experience to put you in the best position possible in your family law matter. We offer scheduled consultations to help you determine what your next steps need to be.
What Are Grounds For Annulment In Texas?
A marriage will need to meet certain requirements for it to be considered for an annulment in Texas. Some of the requirements of the marriage need to be:
- A spouse of the marriage was under age 18.
- A spouse was under the influence of alcohol or narcotics.
- Either spouse is permanently impotent.
- A spouse was convinced to marry the other spouse by fraud, duress, or force.
- A spouse lacked the mental capacity to enter into the marriage.
- A spouse concealed a prior divorce.
- The spouses were married within 72 hours of the marriage license being issued.
Do Both Parties Have to Agree on an Annulment?
It is not required to have your spouse’s consent to file or request for an annulment. Once the request is made, you will have to give your testimony and convince the judge that your marriage should be voided. Your spouse will then have the right to come to the court hearing and dispute the claims you make. The easiest path to an annulment in Texas is if both parties can come to an agreement on the annulment. If you and your spouse do not have children, then it will make the process much easier as well. Having a family law attorney will help you with your testimony and will help you convince the judge that your marriage is voidable.
