Understanding the Concept of Marriage Annulment with the help of Family Law Solicitors

If your marriage has broken down permanently you may seek marriage dissolution in the form of a divorce. However, under for various reasons including religion and race, seeking a divorce may not be an available option. Under such circumstances seeking a Marriage Annulment is considered as the only option. Marriage Annulments are valid under specific circumstances. In the text below, family law solicitors shed more light on the matter.
Annulments are Not a Choice:-
According to the UK law, the option of seeking a marriage annulment is not always possible. A couple is only eligible for a marriage annulment if their marriage is considered void or voidable for reasons that are different from the normal grounds of divorce.
When is a Marriage Voidable?
According to family law solicitors your marriage is considered void:-
– If you are too closely related to your spouse.
o You are not allowed to marry your child, step child, grandchild, nieces or nephews.
o You cannot marry someone who was already married to your parent or grandparent.
– If you got married when you were 16.
– One of you was already married when you got married.
It should be noted that a void marriage is never legally valid however you should still seek advice from family law solicitors before making any decisions.
