The Effects of Annulment in Many Aspects of Your Life

You may think that an annulment sounds simple. When it all boils down to it, it is virtually just the legal process that ends a marriage – and in some cases acts like it never happened at all. Many people, as you know, will seek an annulment for a variety of reasons: such as bigamy, a spouse being under the legal age to marry, a spouse being under duress at the time, not having the mental capacity to agree to marriage, and more.

Usually, receiving an annulment is a simple process compared to going through divorce. But, some factors can make it more complicated. For example, what if you have substantial property and children together? This could make it more complicated. This means that you could suffer many more effects of annulment. You may need our help.

Legal Effects of Annulment

effects of annulmentChildren: No matter what, annulment or divorce, the court takes the best interest of the children into consideration. The court will consider this when they are coming up with the best schedule for a child that concerns visitation and legal decisions, child support, and so much more. 

Alimony: Many people believe that, just because they didn’t go through the actual divorce process, they won’t have to worry about alimony. However, this is not true. In California, it is true that you can’t ask for alimony if you are getting an annulment because it acts as if the marriage never existed. However, it is permitted in a variety of other states. 

Property: Even if you are having an annulment, you could find that you share property together and want to know who gets what. If your state does not permit you to decide on who gets what property after an annulment, general property ownership laws will apply to your case.

You want to be prepared to the best of your ability if you are getting started on your annulment. Is this process really for you, or are there too many other complications in your case? This is for you to decide. Call us for more information on how we can assist with your case.

Beyond impressed! I had been self represented through years of family law and child support court hearings and was so hesitant to hire an attorney out of fear and trusting that they would appropriately represent myself and child. After tons of research I contacted Ms. Azizi. I immediately was greeted by Lorenzo, the Office Administrator, who made me feel so welcomed and comfortable. He assisted in making communication seamless and effortless and walked me through each step of the process. Ms. Azizi heard my concerns and was extremely sensitive to the matter of FAMILY. The team did an amazing job with discovery and building a strong case that gave me confidence and I was successful in coming to an agreement with the other party, in what has yet to have been the easiest hearing of all, thanks to them. Ms. Azizi settled my case after years of stress and agony. I am grateful for finding the team and Ms. Azizi and definitely recommend them for any of your legal needs!

This law firm is the best! They have helped me so much with my Divorce and Criminal cases and I really wouldn't know what to do if I didn't have them to represent me. Lorenzo and Ro are awesome and are there to help at all times. My attorney was Mr.Edmondson and he has been amazing. This law firm is truly great and I will never go to any other one. Their responses are quick and will answer any questions you might have.

Seven stars. I had planned to put up my reviews after my final judgment but after the first hearing, couldn't wait, and I would write this whatever the outcome of my difficult case. Soheila was simply amazing in her arguments and strategy before the judge. I felt so taken care of. I chose her for her near-30 years of experience as an attorney, the depth and strength I observed in one who had weathered hardship through her many accomplishments, her compassion, and her smarts. I can't imagine what other attorney would have Zoomed with me even in sickness to help prepare me for a legal session. And I later saw how keen she'd been in her advice. I've been deeply touched watching Soheila and her paralegal Lynda Walker fight for my child as if he were their own. They in particular have treated me with great humanity - day and night from what I experienced at my former attorney's. Lynda is a gem, on her toes, flexible, hard-working, committed to each client, humble, and sweet. She has slaved over my case, doing much of the writing, watchful of me on paper and in person, guiding me gently while encouraging me to use my voice. The staff, including the office administrator Lorenzo and Linda C, is caring, respectful, and conscientious. A band of angels.
