Tips for Dealing with an Annulment

annulment vs divorceAn annulment is different from a divorce. It effectively ends a marriage and acts as though the wedding never happened. Divorce ends a marriage and treats it as though it has been dissolved.

There are certain benefits to getting an annulment rather than a divorce. The process is quicker and legally speaking it is a cheaper process than a divorce. The issue with dealing with an annulment is you must be able to prove certain conditions exited to get the marriage to end.

Some rules pertaining to the annulment of a marriage. Consult with an attorney to see if this is an option you can choose over a divorce. If you try to get the marriage to be voided, but the case is denied, you can still work for a divorce proceeding.
