Recently, a distraught woman walked into my office and wanted an annulment.
In New York State, it is possible to have a marriage annulled with the help of a divorce attorney. There has to be a really good reason, like fraud or a material lie that induced one of the parties to enter a marriage. Generally, annulments are more difficult and a little more complicated than getting a divorce.
I never try to sway a client either way. If the facts present itself, and it is appropriate, my office will proceed with an annulment. Unless a divorce is against your religion, it has the same practical effect as an annulment. Many people, however, want an annulment for emotional reasons. In essence, the difference between a divorce and an annulment is that a divorce legally ends a marriage, while an annulment effectively declares the marriage to have never been legally valid in the first place.
