Rhode Island Annulment

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