Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Annulments in Denver

Our Denver Annulment Attorney Provides Answers to Your Concerns

The laws governing annulments in Colorado are complex, and the process to obtain one is arduous. Those considering this option have many questions. Below are some of those raised most often, along with our responses.

What is the difference between an annulment and a divorce?

An annulment voids a marriage; it’s as if it never happened.  On the other hand, a divorce ends a marriage. Your Denver annulment attorney can help ascertain if your situation is eligible for an annulment or if you need to file for divorce instead.

Is there a statute of limitations to file for an annulment?

Yes, in Colorado there is, and it varies based on the reason for the annulment. That said, under certain circumstances you would have only 6 months in which to file. Your Denver annulment lawyer can discuss the statute of limitations for your specific situation with you.

Do you need to be married for a specific length of time to seek an annulment?

No, you do not. There is no minimum time frame necessary to seek an annulment in Colorado.

I want to have my marriage annulled, but I have children. How would this impact child support?

Regardless of how you end your marriage (through divorce or annulment) the same laws and guidelines apply to  child support and parenting time. Both will be determined by what is in the best interests of the child. Working with a Denver annulment lawyer who is well-versed in both of these issues is in your best interests if you have children.

Does fraud impact the division of marital property?

If you are seeking an annulment based on fraud and can prove it, it could affect property division. Your Denver annulment attorney can review your situation and explain what you may expect.

Of course, these are only a few of the concerns you may have.  Reach out to our Denver annulment lawyers today to schedule a no-cost consultation.  During this meeting, we can address all of your questions.

Annulment in Colorado

Understanding the Legal Grounds

The decision to end your marriage likely followed much discussion and introspection. In Colorado, marriages can be ended through divorce or annulment.

Obtaining an annulment is more difficult than simply getting a divorce.

In order to have your marriage invalidated, you must prove one of the following seven things:

  • Age of Consent: One of the spouses was under the age of 18 and did not have permission from a judge, their parent, or guardian to get married.
  • Duress: There was pressure to marry – from one of the spouses or another party.
  • Fraud: One spouse misrepresented something about themselves that goes to the essence of the marriage. Basically, one spouse used fraud to convince the other to get married.
  • Consent: One of the spouses was not able to legally consent to getting married because they were drunk, using drugs, or experiencing mental health issues.
  • Consummation: One spouse was unaware of the other’s inability to consummate the marriage.
  • Joke: The marriage occurred as a joke or a dare.
  • Parties Legally Unable to Wed: The spouses are either blood relatives or one is committing bigamy (married to another individual).

Trista Price and her team will review your personal situation to determine if any of these factors exist.  If so, they will gather evidence to use as proof and help you to pursue an annulment of your marriage.
