Annulment of
Marriage
An Annulment is one way to terminate a marriage in Pennsylvania. Annulment applies to marriages that were void from the outset, such as cases where one party lacked intent to marry and was tricked or severely intoxicated. Another type of void marriages involves a lack of capacity to marry where, for example, one party is under age or both parties are related to each other by blood as to fall within the forbidden degree of consanguinity.

The good news is, Pennsylvania is a no fault divorce jurisdiction, which means you need not prove that the other spouse was at "fault" for disrupting the marriage. In fact, in most instances, you need blame your spouse (and that person need not blame you) for any problems in the marriage. Overall, getting a divorce through the family law courts (rather than a quick annulment) may be less painful than you think.

A capable lawyer can walk you through the process and ensure that you maximize your use of the family law courts. If, for example, you and your spouse accumulated assets and you need a judge to ender an order partitioning property, the family law courts are well equipt to enter the appropriate order. Avoiding the family law courts can actually cost you more time and money if the alternative is having a judge in the "civil courts" (non-family law division) to do the same task of partition. Thus, it does not always pay to avoid the family law court depending on your goals.
