Hello,


Thank you for your question.

Grounds for annulment include bigamy, legally incapacity to marry based upon age or mental illness, intent to defraud some other person, business, or government agency or failure to consummate the marriage. If you have not met one of these grounds, you will need to file for divorce

Here is the petition for an annulment in MA:
