Generally, there are three ways to legally end a marriage or domestic partnership in the state of California – divorce, legal separation, and annulment.
An annulment is a legal procedure which cancels a marriage, essentially erasing it and declaring that it either never technically existed or was not valid to begin with. You should be clear on the requirements to annul a marriage, and the State of California suggests that you talk to a lawyer to ensure you qualify.
Whether you qualify for an annulment, or are required to file for a divorce, McNamara Family Law is here to help you.
