Eligibility for Annulment
An annulment cannot simply be granted for no reason. In Utah, the length of a marriage is not typically considered grounds for annulment. The eligibility for a granted annulment in Utah includes the following:
- Close relatives were the involved parties.
- One of the parties is married to another spouse.
- The marriage occurred under fraudulent circumstances.
- One of the parties was under the age of 16.
- One of the parties was under the age of 18 without parental consent
An annulment makes your marriage legally null and void. Some of the most significant benefits of an annulment include the following:
- It is often a faster process than a divorce.
- It allows you to remarry quickly.
- You do not need to separate your assets.
- You do not share the marital debt.
- A prenup becomes invalid.
While an annulment has multiple benefits, we must prove eligibility before proceeding with an annulment.
Annulment vs. Divorce or Legal Separation
An annulment is a way to dissolve the marriage as if it never happened legally. A divorce involves dividing your assets and property. Legal separation involves living separately without a legal end to the marriage. An annulment frees you to marry another spouse, while a legal separation does not. You can receive spousal support and property rights with legal separation or divorce. You cannot receive these things with an annulment.
