South Dakota Annulment Lawyer

Experienced Family Law Attorneys Brookings, SD

Annulment is the legal procedure in which a marriage is declared null and void by the family law courts. When a marriage is annulled, in the eyes of the law, the marriage never existed and is considered invalid.

Reasons for Annulment

While annulments are very rare, they do occur when circumstances permit. Some of the reasons for an annulment include:

  • Pre-existing marriage
  • Unsound mind
  • Underage
  • Fraud / Duress / Coercion
  • Physical incapacity

In order to obtain an annulment, a family law attorney must prove that the marriage is invalid. Proving this can be very difficult and will require the skill of an experienced Eastern South Dakota attorney.
