Difference Between Annulment and Divorce
How does an annulment differ from a divorce?
- Sector-1, Noida
Like a divorce, an annulment is a court proceeding that ends a marriage. However, unlike a divorce, an annulment treats a marriage as though it never happened. Some people want an annulment in order to avoid what they consider the stigma of divorce. Other people prefer an annulment for religious reasons; it may be easier to get a religious annulment if you already have a civil annulment, and getting a divorce will preclude either a religious annulment or remarriage in the church. Most annulments take place after a very short marriage - a few weeks or months. An annulment is more likely to be granted when there are no children and assets or debts to divide.
