Annulment Lawyers Georgia: Alpharetta, Roswell, Johns Creek, Milton, Cumming, Metro Atlanta Area

Coleman Legal Group, LLC’s attorneys practice in the area of Annulment in Georgia. In Georgia, annulment is the legal procedure for declaring a marriage void and invalid from its inception. An annulment returns the parties to their pre-marital positions as if the marriage never occurred. Unlike a divorce, an annulment not only ends a marriage – it treats the marriage as if it had never taken place.

An annulment determines that a valid marriage never took place because the marriage was void or voidable at the time of the marriage. While division of marital property may be part of an annulment, alimony / spousal support is rare. As a parto of an annulment, a party can make a request for temporary alimony, but permanent alimony cannot be awarded as an part of an annulment.

There are several reasons some people may prefer an annulment over a divorce. One common reason an individual may prefer an annulment for religious reasons. Another reason someone may choose an annulment is to avoid the stigma or embarressment of a divorce. Another common reason given for requesting an annulment is to avoid the equitable division of marital property.

Georgia’s Established Laws Setting Forth the Grounds for Annulment. Georgia law provides a short list of strictly applied acceptable grounds for an annulment. A marriage may be annulled in Georgia if a spouse establishes any of the following:

  • the marriage was obtained by fraud or deceit; examples of fraudulent Inducement Into marriage include:
    • the other spouse did not disclosure a pregnancy at the time of marriage
    • the other spouse did not disclosure a venereal disease at the time of marriage
    • the intention not to assume the duties of a marital relationship
    • the other spouse lied about his or her ability to have children
    • the other spouse concealed a sexually transmitted disease or an addition to drugs or alcohol
    • the other spouse misled you about his or her religious faith
    • the spouse lied about being single
  • physical incapacity of either spouse
  • mental incapacity of either spouse
  • one of the parties was under sixteen (16) years of age at the time of the marriage
  • the marriage was obtained by force or duress
  • your spouse was married to another living spouse (bigamy) at the time you married him or her
  • consanguinity between the parties; this is when the spouses are closely related or if either party falls under the prohibited degree of relationship. Examples of “consanguinity between the parties” include marriages between a parent and child or stepchild; or a grandparent and grandchild; or an aunt and nephew; or an uncle and niece.

Under Georgia law a person can only obtain an annulment if there are no children born of the marriage. If you have children with your spouse, then you will not be able to receive an annulment. You will only be able to end your marriage by divorce.
