Annulment

What is annulment?

In the UK, a marriage can be annulled if you can prove that it is void or ‘voidable’. Unlike divorce, you can annul a marriage within the first year. Grounds for annulment include if one of the parties was under 16 years old or is already married, or if the parties are closely related. You can also annul a marriage if you did not properly consent to it, the marriage wasn’t consummated, or if one partner was pregnant by someone else or had a sexually transmitted disease when they got married.
