What is an Annulment?

A San Jose family law attorney comments on the term annulment…

An annulment is a legal proceeding that renders a marriage as “null and void” and differs from divorce in that by its very definition, the annulment essentially means the marriage never existed.

Famous annulments include those of Britney Spears (extracting herself from the Vegas marriage to her high school “sweetheart”), Janet Jackson (claiming family pressure) and Rennee Zellweger’s marriage to country crooner and notable groopie spooner, Kenny Chesney (she sited “fraud”).

Reasons for annulment can include insantiy, consanguinity (the marital couple are related by blood), if murder was invloved to free up one or both of the parties, and adultery.
