How do you know if you should hire a Gilbert AZ annulment attorney? If you are considering divorce in Gilbert Arizona, you may wonder if getting an annulment is an option for you.
Divorce and annulment are both means of ending a marriage. A divorce in Gilbert AZ is a dissolution of marriage that recognizes the legality of the marriage, splits assets and debts accumulated during the marriage, and assigns child custody, visitation, and child support of the couple’s children.
An annulment is different in that once it is granted, the marriage never legally existed. In Gilbert Arizona, a petition for divorce can be filed without fault from either spouse, since it is a no-fault state. An annulment, however, will only be granted if certain criteria are met that refute the legality of the marriage in the first place. The criteria that may refute the legality of marriage are listed as follows:
In order to get an annulment, one spouse must file in Superior Court, like divorce. Keep in mind that it is possible that the judge will not grant the annulment, and then one spouse will need to file for divorce to end the marriage.
