Staten Island Annulment Lawyers

So, You Want to Untie the Knot with an Annulment?

So, you’re feeling a bit stuck, huh? Your fairy-tale marriage feeling more like a horror story? I hear you. Usually, when a sacred union called marriage comes crashing down, divorce comes tiptoeing in, right? But hang on, did you know that divorce isn’t the only route you could take? That’s right, friends! An alternative path exists in the form of a legal separation or, dare I say it, an annulment.

Annulments: Make Your Marriage a Ghost Story

You see, with divorce, you’re just putting your marriage to bed. But with an annulment, right off the bat, it’s like your marriage was never in existence, like a ghost – spooky, huh? You’re basically asking the courts to categorize your matrimony as “null and void.” Yup, we’re talking a full-on amnesia moment for your marriage, completely erased from your life!

But be warned, my friend. Trying to get an annulment is not as straightforward as strutting into the courthouse and saying, ‘I wish I could unmarry you!’ You’re going to need some serious ammunition in the form of valid reasons and possible proof. Need more information about annulments in New York? Hop over to New York’s Civil Code.

Finding an Annulment: No Walk in the Park

It’s easier to spot a unicorn frolicking in Central Park than for an annulment to pass through the court. In the state of NY, there are clearly defined circumstances under which an annulment can be granted. You think your spouse cheating or being mentally or physically cruel is enough? Think again. However, marriage fraud, such as marrying under a false identity or without dissolving a previous marriage, could qualify you for an annulment.

Nooks and Crannies of Annulment

Other reasons that could have you ringing the annulment bell include being forced into marriage or being married underage. There’s no time limit to file for an annulment, but there are conditions. For instance, if you married underage and then stuck around after reaching the legal age, sorry buddy, an annulment is not in the stars for you!

Making an informed decision about an annulment is easier when you have a seasoned pro by your side. That’s where I, Todd Spodek, and my team at Spodek Law Group come in.

What’s Left in the Annulment Aftermath?

Let’s get something straight. Annulment might wipe your marriage slate clean, but that doesn’t mean it erases everything else. You might still have to tackle the pesky issues like child custody, alimony, and dividing the assets you stacked together during your so-called marital bliss.

Only a legal ace can help you navigate these murky waters and guess what? You’re in luck! The good folks at the Spodek Law Group, led by yours truly, Todd Spodek, will support you through your journey, including handling the pesky aftermath of an annulment.

Alright, now that you have a fair idea about what annulment entails, take some time to mull it over. And remember, the Spodek Law Group is just a call away. Cheers!
