Understanding the Annulment Process

When it comes to terminating a marriage, divorce is often the first option that comes to mind. However, in certain cases, couples may also consider pursuing an annulment. An annulment invalidates a marriage as if it never happened, and it differs from divorce in several key aspects.

Annulments are granted based on specific grounds recognized by Texas law. To pursue an annulment, it is crucial to understand these grounds and how the annulment process unfolds.

Grounds for Annulment

Under the law in Texas, there are various grounds upon which a marriage can be annulled. These grounds include:

  • Fraud or misrepresentation
  • Bigamy or polygamy
  • Underage marriage
  • Impotence
  • Unsound mind
  • Force or duress

If any of these grounds apply to your marriage, you may have a valid case for annulment. Consulting with a knowledgeable attorney, such as James D Jones, who specializes in family law and has extensive experience with annulments, is essential to protect your rights and interests.
