New York Annulment

If you want to legally end your New York marriage, there may be an option other than divorce. In some instances, you may be able to obtain a New York 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 New York 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 New York annulment attorney if you're considering annulment as a way to end your marriage. Your New York annulment lawyer will be familiar with the legal process of annulling a New York marriage.
