Annulments and Declarations of Invalidity

Thursday, 20 December 2007

We are sometimes asked about annulment as an alternative to Divorce. Divorce Lawyers in Colorado Springs at The Marrison Family Law LLC handle the annulment or the divorce in Colorado. In other words, divorce law in Colorado Springs includes the potential of setting aside a marriage rather than ending it.

We are sometimes asked about annulment as an alternative to Divorce. Divorce Lawyers at The Marrison Family Law LLC in Colorado Springs handle both the annulment or the divorce in Colorado. In other words, divorce law in Colorado Springs includes the potential of setting aside a marriage rather than ending it.

An annulment is called a declaration of invalidity in Colorado.  You may file this motion if:

  • you lacked capacity to consent to marriage,

  • lacked physical capacity to consummate the marriage and the other party did not know of this incapacity,

  • were under age at the time of the marriage,

  • entered the marriage in reliance on a fraud or representation of the other party that goes to the essence of the marriage

  • entered the marriage under duress,

  • entered the marriage as a jest or dare, OR

  • the marriage is prohibited by law – i.e. you were already married, you are marrying your sister, etc.

And rather than seek a divorce, we at the Marrison Family Law LLC , can obtain that declaration through a simple motion.

Unlike the Colorado Springs divorce, the Colorado Springs annulment does not require a 90 waiting period. Property division can still be managed, and if there were children, they do not become illegitimate through the declaration of invalidity. So if you believe you want to invalidate the marriage, instead of ending it, call us at the Marrison Family Law LLC (719)577-9292.
