Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.To answer directly, that would not be sufficient. Utah grounds for an annulment from the Utah State Law Library are: * Where the marriage is prohibited or void under Title 30, Chapter 1, Section 2, which deals with age requirements, prior marriages and divorces, and persons of the same sex. * Where the marriage is incestuous, and therefore void. * Common law grounds include fraud, misrepresentation, and failure to consummate the marriage. Since the witness was not one who was married, there is no age concern, and the marriage would subsequently be deemed valid.Good luck.
My apologies but annulling a wedding based on a faulty witness is terribly unlikely. I did indeed provide you information verbatim (as I even told you where I obtained the information), but it does not make that information false or inaccurate. The courts would consider an unqualified witness as being a 'minor' error to the certificate, meaning that such an error is not material enough (significant enough) to cancel the marriage. There are only a few grounds for an annulment in Utah, and none of those grounds are based on an improper witness.
You asked a 'yes/no' question and that is exactly how I responded--this is one of a very few situations where the answer really is a yes or a no without any direct conditions because annulments are solely governed by statutory language--if the language does not have such a condition, an annulment is not possible.Good luck.
