Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.
You would not have to disclose the annulment, once granted it does void the prior marriage here in Ohio.The NC application only refers to divorces and not annulments so I see no problem there.
I appreciate the chance to help you and congrats on the new marriage.Thanks again.

If it specifically mentions annulments I would go on and disclose it here in NC. Thats the safe play, disclose it and see if they ask for a copy of the annulment order.You do swear to this under oath and you don't want perjury issues here in NC.Thats a pretty specific question rather than are you divorced, I think you should disclose and be honest here.
Yes it would , one was annulled here to properly answer it.Thanks for the follow up.
Honestly they probably have no means to check it here.I agree with you that once annulled it never happened legally.My concern is that you are swearing tot he information.Again not sure they have any means to verify it.I any agree with what the Ohio lawyer said I do not see that NC would have way to claim otherwise if it was annulled.
Thanks for the follow up.
I do not think they have any means to verify this.I have known clients that married in two states and nobody ever complained.If you have already completed it then let it go I do not see them having a means to check this.
I wish you the best with the wedding.Thanks again.
They could just deny it until you provided the annulment order, thats about it.You claim you didn't know better if challenged.
