Good morning. What State do you reside in and what is the basis for the annulment?
South Carolina requires a legal ground for your marriage to be annulled. To have your marriage annulled you will need to prove one of the following grounds:
Your complaint for annulment should list the date of your marriage and the city, county and state where you were married. You will need to give the county where you live and where your spouse lives. The complaint should also list the names and birthdates of any children born during the marriage. State the legal ground that makes your marriage eligible to be annulled. If you want the court to decide custody, child support, visitation, alimony or property division, you should state that in your complaint as well.
After you file your complaint with your circuit family court, you’ll have to serve a copy of the complaint on your spouse. The clerk at your circuit family court can tell you how to serve your spouse. It’s possible to serve your spouse even if you can’t find them or they live out of state.
Your circuit family court will hold a hearing where you’ll have to prove the legal grounds for your annulment. Bring any evidence that supports your legal grounds with you to the hearing. If the judge believes you’ve proven your case, the judge will grant your annulment.
