Is It Too Late To Get An Annulment?
Marriage is an extremely personal and important decision in a person’s life. Its effects can be life-changing and lifelong. The reality of this situation may seem very different after the ceremony has occurred, or pertinent information may not have been discovered or revealed before the marriage becomes official. In these cases, an annulment may be in the best interest of one or both of the spouses involved in the marriage.
If there has been a situation that has compromised the validity or legality of your marriage, you need an experienced family law attorney to help you sort through this process. Issues of annulment can often be complex or private in nature, and having an experienced and discrete lawyer working with you can be very important to the outcome of your annulment case.

Timing of an Annulment
Because an annulment may be in the best interest of a person or couple involved in a marriage, there are specific legal regulations concerning annulment. Many of the reasons for which an annulment will be granted depend on the timing of the marriage. Time is a factor in the following annulment situations:
- An annulment can be granted if a marriage ceremony is performed within 72 hours of the issuing of a marriage license.
- An annulment cannot be granted if a marriage ceremony is performed within 72 hours of the issuing of a marriage license if 30 days pass before the petition is filed.
- An annulment can be issued if a couple was married while under the influence of drugs or alcohol and the couple has not voluntarily cohabitated since those effects wore off.
For these reasons and others, timing is an important factor if you are seeking an annulment.
