What is Annulment? UK Annulment Solicitors

An annulment is a formal declaration by a court that a marriage was never valid and that the couple should be returned to their pre-marriage state of affairs. The UK court can make one of two declarations:

  • The marriage is declared null and invalid: this phrase alludes to a marriage that was never recognised as valid.
  • The marriage is voidable: This indicates that the marriage was valid prior to the annulment’s declaration of nullity and void.

It may also be advisable to obtain an annulment when there are religious or cultural issues surrounding obtaining a divorce. Some people do not want to go through the divorce process or be labelled as divorcees for various reasons that are specific to them. 

Tann Law Solicitors understand the importance of religion and culture in these situations and will provide you with appropriate assistance.

Our UK annulment solicitors have wealth of experience and knowledge of successfully handling nullity petitions for annulment of marriage or civil partnership.

In certain conditions, it is possible to end a marriage with an annulment rather than a divorce. An annulment can only be obtained if a precise set of circumstances occurs. Even if you meet all of the requirements, you must still finalise your financial, business, and childcare arrangements before filing for divorce. 

A divorce cannot be acquired after a wedding, but an annulment can be requested at any time after the wedding. Cases are not always straightforward, and you may be asked to appear in court in order to submit evidence. 

In most cases, annulments take between four and six months to complete; but if the annulment is challenged. If you require aid in obtaining or negotiating an annulment, our annulment solicitors can provide you with assistance.
