Legal Guidance In The Annulment Process

When a marriage comes to an end, many people want to annul the marriage. Under Massachusetts law, an annulment is a legal proceeding that declares that the marriage never existed. There are specific criteria that must be met and a specific process that must be followed in order to obtain an annulment.

These are extremely complex cases that require the attention of a qualified annulment lawyer. In Lowell, Dracut and across Massachusetts, as well as in southern New Hampshire, the family law attorneys at Manzi, Seccareccio & Merwin, P.C., provide skillful representation. In every case, we take the time to fully understand your goals and explain your legal options.

Can My Marriage Be Annulled?

An annulment voids a marriage, in effect saying it never occurred. Many people who wish to pursue an annulment are not eligible to get one. When you hire our firm, we will conduct a thorough review of the circumstances surrounding your case and give you an honest assessment regarding your chances for success. If an annulment is available in your case, we will help you through the necessary steps to obtain it.

Under Massachusetts law, an annulment may be possible if one party was already married to someone else or if there is a marriage between close relatives. A marriage may also be voided if one party does not have the mental capacity to provide consent or if it is discovered that one spouse is physically unable to have sexual intercourse.

If your marriage is not able to be annulled, we are fully prepared to represent you in your divorce proceeding. We have extensive experience handling all aspects of these cases, and we work tirelessly to see that your interests and the interests of your children are protected.
