An annulment in Georgia essentially means that the court is rendering your marriage invalid. The court order is what will render the marriage invalid, and you and your spouse will no longer be legally married. Divorce is not the same as an annulment, as a divorce dissolves a legal marriage. Annulments only dissolve marriages that are not legally valid.
Reasons for Marriage Annulment
In Georgia, the following five reasons are applicable for a marriage annulment:
- At least one spouse was mentally incompetent at the time of the marriage
- At least one spouse was too young to be married, at the time of the marriage
- At least one spouse only consented to the marriage due to fraud or coercion
- At least one spouse was still legally married to another living person (known as bigamy)
- The spouses are closely related, so that the marriage is considered incestuous
Statute of Limitations for Marriage Annulment
Georgia does not have a statute of limitations for marriage annulments; however, an annulment will not be granted if there are children born or are to be born of the marriage. If you have any concerns about your marriage annulment, contact an experienced Georgia family law attorney for more information regarding your legal circumstances.
