Pursuing a Nullity in San Jose
As differentiated from a divorce—which represents a legal dissolution of a marriage—a declaration of nullity may be pursued when the requisite conditions for marriage never existed in the first place. As such, a marriage must already be void or voidable in order for a couple to petition for a nullity. To determine whether a condition that would make your marriage void existed at the time of your marriage, it is highly advisable that you consult with an experienced family law attorney. While this legal process can be complicated to achieve, an experienced family law attorney can help you through the process as smoothly as possible.
Conditions in Which a Declaration of Nullity May be Sought
In order for a couple to be granted a declaration of nullity, one of the following conditions may have been existent at the time of the marriage:
- One spouse was incapable of understanding the effect, nature, or consequences of his or her legal union
- One spouse was already married or part of a domestic partnership
- Consent was obtained by duress or fraud
Our San Jose attorneys know that this process can be difficult and emotionally complicated; we may do everything we can to put the matter behind you quickly.
