Every relationship is unique and not all marriages end with a straightforward divorce. Sometimes, couples find themselves in a situation where an annulment might be a better option. An annulment legally erases a marriage, treating it as if it never happened. Unlike divorce, which ends a legally valid marriage, an annulment acknowledges that a marital relationship was invalid from the start.
At the Reade Law Firm, PC, we are experienced in navigating the intricacies of both divorce and annulments. We know that this is a difficult time for you and we are here to help guide you through the process.
Annulment vs Divorce: The Key Differences
The main difference between an annulment and a divorce is that a divorce dissolves a valid marriage, while an annulment declares a marriage invalid from its inception. Some reasons for seeking an annulment include fraud, coercion, impotence, or if one or both parties were underage or unable to give consent at the time of the marriage.
It’s important to remember that not every situation qualifies for an annulment. The legal requirements are specific and stringent. That’s where our expertise at the Reade Law Firm, PC comes into play. We can assess your unique situation and advise on the best course of action.
Navigating the Annulment Process
The annulment process can be complex and involves presenting evidence to a court to prove that your marriage was invalid. This might include witness testimonies, documentation, and a clear and concise presentation of your case.

Choosing The Right Path For You
Choosing between an annulment and a divorce is a personal decision and depends on your unique circumstances.
