Good afternoon. There needs to be a legal basis, for a marriage to be annulled.

For a marriage to be annulled in Virginia, a spouse needs a legal ground (or reason) for annulment. Each of the following is a legal ground for annulment in Virginia:

  • Bigamy – a spouse already has a husband or wife at the time of marriage
  • Incest – the spouses are related, closer than first cousins
  • Incompetent – one spouse wasn’t mentally able to understand the marriage
  • Fraud – a spouse only agreed to marry because of the other spouse’s deception
  • Impotence – one spouse is unable to engage in sexual relations
  • Underage – one spouse is under the legal age to be married
  • Prostitute or felon – one spouse didn’t tell the other they were a prostitute or convicted felon
  • Child by other person – a wife is pregnant by another man at the time of marriage or a husband has a child by another woman within 10 months of marriage
  • Duress – one spouse only married because of force or fear of serious harm, and
  • Sham marriage – the spouses got married for other intentions besides the normal purposes of marriage.

If none of these are present, you would have to file for divorce.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
