Do I Need an Attorney for Annulment?
Protect Your Rights Before Signing the Papers
An annulment is similar to a divorce in that they have the same end goal:
dissolving a marital relationship. However, annulment treats a marriage
like it never happened in the first place. Individuals with religious
beliefs or personal concerns may choose an annulment because of the shame
that a divorce may bring.
Unfortunately, not just anyone can get an annulment. Nevada imposes very
specific requirements and unless you meet one of the criteria, you won’t
be considered eligible. Hiring a Las Vegas divorce attorney
before you pursue annulment can save you valuable time and money in the long-run.

What are the grounds for annulment in Nevada?
Unlike divorce, you cannot get an annulment based on irreconcilable differences.
You must have an approved reason before filing for annulment.
You can get an annulment for any of these reasons:
- Lack of consent of a parent or guardian if consent was required
- The marriage was illegal due to being too closely related
- Either spouse has been declared insane
- Either spouse was already married at the time of the second marriage
- The marriage occurred because of fraud or lies
Because the reasons
are so limited, it can be difficult to know if your marriage qualifies for
annulment. Furthermore, there are additional residency requirements and
numerous documents to fill out. Your attorney can determine if you are
eligible and help you file.
