Information and Facts about Annulment and Nullity.

Annulment is a declaration by the court that a marriage was not legally valid or had become legally invalid.

Under English law an annulment may be granted for any of the following reasons:

  • If the marriage hasn't been 'consummated' (you haven't had sex with the person you married since the wedding), either because one of you chooses not to or is not physically capable
  • If either party was already married at the time of your marriage
  • If either party didn't or was unable to give valid consent to the marriage
  • If you or your spouse was under 16 at the time of the wedding
  • If you weren't a fully male/female couple
  • If you and your spouse were related (this is complex and needs some consideration by an experienced lawyer)
  • If your spouse had a communicable form of a sexually transmitted disease when you got married
  • If your spouse was pregnant with someone else's child and you didn't know about it
  • If you didn't conform with the proper legal requirements – i.e. not filling in forms properly
