Thanks for your question.In you situation such as yours a person who married couple learns that their marriage is not valid or legal. In this situation, a court may grant a legal annulment . Herein this situation an annulment is a declaration by the court that a valid marriage never existed.
In Pennsylvania, your marriage in this matter may be declared void by Pennsylvania courts and an annulment granted if requested by one of the parties. In Pennsylvania, a voidable marriage exists in your situation where either party entered into the marriage as a result of fraud, duress, coercion, or force.
Your marriage is always considered a contract, and if either individual was unable to enter into the contract, the court may determine that no contract of marriage ever existed. In your case this may likely be the outcome.
You are going to need to obtain a lawyer to pursue your claim here. You will file in Pennsylvania and you may have issues since he is Canadian.But your lawyer can deal with these as you have good facts. I wish you the best and certianly sympathy for this situation
