Serving Clients in Johnson County Since 1990
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, a Burleson annulment lawyer at Coontz Cochran can help you navigate the process.
The Annulment Laws in Texas
If you choose to pursue an annulment, it is important to know on what grounds the Texas courts will grant this.
Grounds for an Annulment May Include:
- Marriage under the age of 14
- Marriage under the age of 18
- Marriage under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Marriage under fraudulent pretenses or through forceful coercion
- Mental incapacity
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 annulment attorney in Burleson 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.
