Similar to a divorce, having a marriage “annulled” ends the legal union between the spouses. However, unlike a divorce, an annulment deems the marriage void from the very beginning. From a legal standpoint, it is as though the wedding never even happened.
Not every marriage can be annulled. There are very specific grounds that must be proven, and often, you must act quickly or you will be deemed to have “waived” your right to an annulment.
