Hello! I like to recap the purpose of this Blog. It's purpose is to serve as an open form for questions and answers that anyone has for divorces in California or other Community Property States ( who's divorces are historically longer in comparsion to other states) which can help spouses that are thinking about a divorce, in the process of one, or looking to making changes in there divorce orders after a divorce.
I had a customer who called my office for our assistant with his paperwork in an annullment (nulity of a marriage). He stated that he and his wife wanted an annullment oppose to them getting a divorce because he could not give her a Baby. Is this grounds for an annnullment in California?
Well I did a little rescreach on my own. What I found was annullments ( which is not a divorce, because there would have not been a marriage) in California are not that easy to get. What You may see as grounds ( such as a short term marriage under one year) the courts may not approve. I have seen this in a few cases where I as a legal document performed the paperework. Nevertheless, here are the grounds in Calirornia they are as follows:
1. Nulilty of a void ( not legal ) marriage ( family code 2200) are incestuous marriage and bigamous marriages.
2. Nulilty of a voidable marriage ( those which can be set side by the courts) are based on petitioners age at the time of marriage, prior existing marriage, unsound mine,fraud , force, and physical incapacity
So, I guest the person who called us does meet the requirements for an anullment.
