HelloThank you.An annulment is not about time limit. An annulment will only be considered in the following circumstances:
1. The parties are legally unable to create a contract of marriage. For instance one or both is under the legal age of majority or lacks the mental or physical capacity.
2. There is a blood relationship between the marital partners.
3. If either party was intoxicated when the marriage occurred or participated because under duress, there could be grounds for marriage annulment.
4. If one partner misrepresented his or her religious affiliations or hid the existence of a prior marriage, grounds exist.
5. If either partner refuses intercourse, the marriage could be annulled.6. OR if one party committed fraud. For instance, if your brother never revealed he is on parole and his now spouse never knew it.Also, please note that the your brother or his wife are the only ones who can file for the annulment or a divorce. They cannot be forced to do that.
You're welcome. Best of luck with everything. Thanking you in advance for a positive rating.
