MIAMI, FL (PRWEB) January 01, 2014
Understanding the legalities involved in filing for an annulment is necessary before filling out paperwork with the court.
In an effort to ensure clients understand the process and requirements involved, Theodore H. Enfield, a Miami Dade lawyer, now provides complimentary annulment legal counseling and education.
Annulment is a process by which a court determines a marriage is not valid and never legally existed; even after a ceremony was conducted.
It is not uncommon for people to confuse which criteria fall under annulment and which fall under divorce. For example, many believe the length of time a couple have been married is enough justification to file for an annulment. Length of time, itself, is not enough to file.
Specific grounds for filing an annulment must fall under one of three specific categories which are fraud, bigamy, or insanity.
A few examples include:
- mental illness
- forced consent
- one or both partners were under the influence of drugs/alcohol
- one or both parties were not old enough to enter into a marriage
- one or both parties were still legally married to another party when the marriage ceremony was conducted (bigamy)
- domestic violence
Before moving forward and filing for an annulment in the state of Florida, it is imperative to first seek legal counseling to better understand Florida laws pertaining to annulment. During a complimentary counseling session with the family law office of Theodore Engield, each client will be provided with the necessary facts pertaining to the annulment process and have a clearer understanding of their options.
