West Virginia Annulment

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