Your Annulment From A Forced Marriage

Everyone has the right to choose whom they will marry. However, some people may not have that option available to them. Their families consider marriage a social act. In other words, their children have to marry the person they choose. They don’t ask their children their opinion or approval. They just think they know what’s more appropriate for their children. These marriages are arranged by the children’s families. Some traditions can be quite shocking as the girl is sometimes told about the marriage when the wedding has already being scheduled.

In the United States alone there are about 3000 forced marriage cases from 2009 to 2011. Although in most states the legal age to marry is 16 as long as the parent’s consent, there are hundreds of cases reported where children ages 10 to 15 have been forced into marriage. Forced marriage is a human right violation in the US and in some specific circumstances, it may categorize as child abuse. Contact an Aventura annulment attorney to handle all the details of your annulment case.

Free at last

Victims of an arranged marriage often feel trapped in these situations. While arranged unions sometimes work, one only wonders about the level of happiness these individuals experience. There is freedom in being able to decide what you want to do with your life. The option for annulment can feel liberating for some as it provides them with a way to escape from an unwanted marriage.

Reasons to annul your marriage

In order for the court to declare that your marriage is not longer valid, you will have to prove it. Some reasons include:

  • You were too young when you first got married.
  • One of the spouses’ lack of mental capacity.
  • Physical incapacitation.
  • Pressured to get married.

Although marriages entered under such circumstances can be annulled, there are still other issues that have to be dealt with the sun as children and property division.

Annulment law

Annulment is quite different from a divorce. It’s as if the marriage never occurred. Getting an annulment without legal representation it’s quite difficult. Although the process is similar to a divorce, the requirements are different. Your attorney can get all the paperwork ready and submit it to the court. He will also represent you before the judge.
