The popular notion is that annulments are used to terminate especially brief marriages. This, however, is not the case. Annulments are used to invalidate any marriage that was entered into under fraudulent circumstances. While a divorce seeks to dissolve a legitimate marriage between two people, an annulment recognizes that the marriage was never legitimate to begin with.

Grounds for annulment in Colorado include:

  • Lack of mental capacity when entering the marriage
  • Entry into the marriage as a jest
  • Entry into the marriage under duress
  • Entry into the marriage while underage
  • Entry into the marriage under fraudulence or misrepresentation
  • Entry into the marriage without physical capacity to consummate the marriage
  • Any elements of bigamy, polygamy, or incest

Fraudulence or misrepresentation needs to be recognized in what is called “to the essence of the marriage.” Examples of this include marrying for immigration status, marrying for money, or marrying under the assumption that a spouse was seriously ill. If you believe that your marriage occurred under one of these circumstances and need the legal assistance to assuredly pursue an annulment, then get in contact with my firm today.
