Texas Attorney Advises Clients Seeking Civil Annulment of Their Marriage

Compassionate family lawyer assists husbands and wives in the San Antonio area who believe their union is invalid

People often mistakenly think that civil annulment allows a newlywed couple to change their mind and legally reverse their marriage. This is not the case, however. As a knowledgeable family lawyer at the Law Office of James A. Rickerson III and Associates, I can explain who might be eligible for annulment under Texas law. I have considerable experience representing clients in the San Antonio area and throughout Texas in a full range of family law matters. If a legal flaw does exist in your union, my firm can help you pursue an annulment so that you can move on with confidence in the future.

Sympathetic counselor advises on potential legal grounds to undo your marriage

At the Law Office of James A. Rickerson III and Associates, I will examine your situation to help determine if your union can be annulled. Though jurisdictions differ, common legal justifications can include:

  • Fraud — Misrepresentation of a material fact can be grounds for annulment. This can include lying about the ability to parent children or consummate the marriage.
  • Age or mental capacity — If one party was underage at the time of the marriage or lacked the requisite mental state to make such a commitment, an annulment might be possible.
  • Duress — When someone is forced or threatened into getting married, that does not constitute legal consent, and the marriage can be invalidated.
  • Bigamy — If it is discovered that one spouse was already married when the wedding occurred, that is grounds for annulment even if the spouse was not aware of that fact.

I am experienced in all types of marital litigation and can advise you on your options for annulling your union.

Dedicated advocate guides you through the annulment process

After a detailed review of your situation, I can help determine the likelihood of success for an annulment petition. Unlike divorce, which ends a marriage, annulment is a determination that a legitimate marriage never existed. However, annulment does not affect issues relating to child support or parentage. I will provide the advice and advocacy you require when you decide to annul your marriage.
