Annulment Attorney in Colorado

What is the Difference Between an Annulment and a Dissolution of Marriage?

Legally, the outcome of an annulment and a dissolution of marriage are no different. Some people consider an annulment as a simple way to end a brief marriage. However, because Colorado is a no-fault state regarding divorce, it is almost as simple to petition for a dissolution of marriage. The primary difference between the two is that an annulment effectively cancels the marriage, as if it never happened in the first place.

Under Colorado law, certain requirements and criteria must be met if a person wishes to obtain an annulment, or declaration of invalidity of marriage, in the state of Colorado. If you feel your marriage meets any of the following criteria for annulment, we advise that you consult with a Colorado divorce attorney from Feldmann Nagel, LLC:

  • At the time of marriage, one party lacked the mental capability (due to alcohol, drugs, or another issue) to legally consent to the marriage.
  • One party was unable to physically consummate the marriage, and the other party was unaware of this inability prior to the marriage.
  • One party was underage, and did not have prior consent from either the parents, the guardian or a Colorado family law court to get married.
  • One party consented to the marriage under duress.
  • One party entered in the marriage based on the misrepresentation or fraudulent act of the other party.
  • The marriage was entered into as a dare or joke, on behalf of either party.
  • The marriage was illegal and void to begin with due to incest, polygamy, or another other reason which made it illegal.

Our attorneys will take the time to thoroughly review your circumstances, determine if your request for annulment falls within the legal time frame, help you define your legal objectives, advise you of your options, and provide you with the effective representation you require.
