Who Can Annul A Marriage In Wisconsin?
Many people believe that if an individual is married for a very short time, that fact in and of itself will form the legal basis for an annulment. This is not true. The duration of the marriage is not a legal factor on which a request for an annulment alone can be granted.
When can an annulment be granted? In Wisconsin, the most common basis for an annulment is what is known as fraud as to the essentials of the marriage. Another basis would be a party lacking the legal capacity to consent to a marriage. At Brazil & Benske, LLC, our experienced family law attorneys can help you determine whether your circumstances qualify you to pursue an annulment, then help you through the process.
