Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.My apologies but please allow me to provide you with a bit of good news. Annulments, much like divorces, require at least one party to appear in court and confirm the petition request. If neither of you appear in court, judges do not grant annulments. Instead, judge will simply set aside the petition and if time goes on, they end up dismissing it outright. So if your spouse does not appear, judges will not grant the annulment. In this case, if there s no court hearing yet, and you wish to avoid a decision, the best option may well be to do nothing since the courts will not grant it without a formal court appearance.Good luck.
