Annulment may be an option over divorce in some cases where the marriage is by law void or voidable. A void marriage in Nevada is one where a party is already married or related by blood closer than second cousins. Voidable marriage includes marriages where a minor is involved and there is no parental consent, for want of understanding, fraud or if circumstances exists that the marriage could be declared void in equity.
Nevada provides annulment for cases that are void or voidable even where the parties do not reside in the state of Nevada. Parties under this provision must have been married in Nevada and met the requirements for either a void or voidable marriage NRS 125.360. If you think that you may qualify for annulment, live out of state but were married in Nevada, we are happy to discuss your options.
