Annulment basically means asking a court to declare that your marriage never happened. Under N.J.S.A 2A:34-1, grounds for annulment include bigamy, incest, impotence, infancy, and incapacity to marry. You can also get an annulment if you can show by clear and convincing evidence, that one party committed fraud as to the essentials of the marriage – such a promising they wanted children, but then changing their mind, or lying about their religion or immigration status. If you believe your marriage was entered into under circumstances such as these, you should consult the Law Offices of Sadaf Trimarchi to best advise you, as well as to consider whether it makes more sense to obtain a divorce or an annulment.
