SKILLED LAWYER REPRESENTS HUSBANDS AND WIVES IN THE NEW YORK METROPOLITAN WHO BELIEVE THEIR UNION IS INVALID
People often mistakenly believe that civil annulment allows a newlywed couple to change their mind and legally reverse their marriage. This is not the case. As a seasoned family lawyer, Michelle M. Delgado can explain who might be eligible for annulment under New York law. Our firm has considerable experience representing clients throughout New York in a full range of family law matters. If a legal flaw does exist in your union, we can help you pursue an annulment.
EXPERIENCED ADVOCATE ADVISES ON POTENTIAL LEGAL GROUNDS TO UNDO YOUR MARRIAGE GROUNDS
At the Law Offices of Michelle M. Delgado, P.C., we will examine your situation to help determine if your union can be annulled. Though jurisdictions differ, common legal justifications can include:
- Fraud — Misrepresentation of a material fact can be grounds for annulment. This can include lying about the ability to parent children or consummate the marriage.
- Age or mental capacity — If one party was underage at the time of the marriage or lacked the requisite mental state to make such a commitment, an annulment might be possible.
- Duress — When someone is forced or threatened into getting married, that does not constitute legal consent, and the marriage can be invalidated.
- Bigamy — If it is discovered that one spouse was already married when the wedding occurred, that is grounds for annulment even if the spouse was not aware of that fact.
Michelle M. Delgado is experienced in all types of marital litigation and can advise you on your options for annulling your union.
KNOWLEDGEABLE COUNSELOR GUIDES YOU THROUGH THE ANNULMENT PROCESS
After a detailed review of your situation, Michelle M. Delgado can help determine the likelihood of success for an annulment action. Unlike divorce, which ends a marriage, annulment is a determination that a legitimate marriage never existed. However, annulment does not affect issues relating to child support or parentage. The firm will provide the advice and advocacy you require when you decide to annul your marriage.
