Annulment in Arizona


The State of Arizona allows for the annulment of marriage if there is a specific finding that the marriage was void. An annulment creates the legal fiction that the marriage never actually occurred and renders it invalid. A marriage is not applicable for annulment simply because the parties no longer wish to be married and it has been a marriage of short duration. For a court to grant an annulment, a number of legal steps must be taken and complex property issues could arise.

Reasons to Seek an Annulment

There are several reasons to seek an annulment that will be accepted under the law, including:

  • Inability to consummate the marriage
  • Fraud or misrepresentation
  • Diminished mental capacity
