District Of Columbia Annulment
If you want to legally end your District Of Columbia marriage, there may be an option other than divorce. In some instances, you may be able to obtain a District Of Columbia annulment. When you get a divorce, you are legally ending a marriage. When you annul a marriage, on the other hand, you're voiding the marriage entirely. That's because a District Of Columbia annulment is a legal process to prove that the marriage license should not have been legally recognized. Because the license was invalid, the marriage itself is also invalidated.
Not every divorce lawyer has experience handling annulments. You should specifically hire a District Of Columbia annulment attorney if you're considering annulment as a way to end your marriage. Your District Of Columbia annulment lawyer will be familiar with the legal process of annulling a District Of Columbia marriage.
