Is Annulment An Option?

When you decide to end your marriage, the idea of divorce might seem unthinkable. For some people, divorce is not an option at all, due to their particular religious beliefs. Others would like to split as a couple, yet they would prefer to hold off on the divorce discussion until it feels right. This can be important for families with children in high school, and in the state of Connecticut, you have some options.

At the law offices of Charles & Concilio, LLC in Greenwich, CT, we can help you to navigate the complex (and sometimes confusing) world of family law in the state of Connecticut. Here in our state, the law provides for civil annulment, which can be a help in certain circumstances. This process states that the marriage was never legal to begin with, meaning that it is invalid and must be revoked. Legal separation is another possibility, and this allows you and your partner to potentially rectify the situation. It can also help while you wait for a more advantageous time. Give us a call and speak with our team today to learn more about your path toward ending your marriage.

What Is A Civil Annulment?

If you have heard about annulments in the religious sense, it is important to understand the difference between this term and one civil annulments. The former refers to discussions within your church, which do not have any bearing over the legal element of your marriage. With both of these concepts, however, the idea is that the marriage was never fully official to begin with.

There are strict requirements in Connecticut to qualify for an annulment, so they do not make sense in every situation. For instance, if you have learned that your partner is actually a relative, you cannot be married in our state. Finding out that your spouse has a previous marriage that they never ended is another reason for a civil annulment.

Legal Separation Provides A Divorce Alternative

For those looking to end their marriage without an immediate divorce, legal separation may prove to be a helpful outcome. As in most states, Connecticut gives you two the ability to formally separate, while keeping your marriage intact. This approach can be a benefit for those in certain religious households that need to avoid divorce. It can also be a way to start the process if you have an older child who is going to be leaving the nest sometime soon.
