Barrington Annulment Lawyers
Understanding 'Invalidity Of Marriage' In Illinois
In Illinois, an annulment is termed an "invalid" marriage. Such marriage invalidations were made much rarer when no-fault divorce became available in the state. In some situations, however, having a marriage invalidated or annulled is still an option.
The Barrington annulment attorneys at Manassa Hartman, P.C., provide experienced, respectful and empathetic legal counsel and representation to both men and women who need to contest the validity of a marriage. With decades of experience, we understand exactly what it takes to prove in a court of law that one party:
• Did not have the mental capacity to consent to the marriage.
• Was forced or coerced into the marriage.
• Was 17 or younger and lacked parental consent.
• Did not have the physical ability to consummate the marriage.
• Was already legally married to another person.
• Was the victim of another type of marriage fraud.
Although a religious institution may grant an annulment, it will not affect the couple's marital status with the state of Illinois. In a similar manner, having the state determine that a marriage is invalid will not necessarily change a couple's status within their religious society.
