There are many situations where marriage is hastily pursued or there are unknown factors about the marriage that result in the need for an annulment. While a divorce is the process by which a couple dissolves a marriage, an annulment can be granted to make a marriage null and void without divorce proceedings. If you have been married and you are seeking an annulment, the Burleson annulment attorneys at Coontz Cochran can help you navigate the process.
If you choose to pursue an annulment, it is important to know on what grounds the Texas courts will grant this.
The various grounds for an annulment may include the following among others in this state:
Any of these circumstances allow for a marriage to be voided, and it is important that you discuss the various aspects of your situation with a skilled attorney in order to determine if your marriage falls under any of these categories. Some aspects are more difficult to prove than others; for example, proving that you were married under fraudulent pretenses can be difficult, as there is generally not much evidence in these types of cases. Additionally, the condition of impotency can include a number of physical or mental impairments.
