Los Angeles County Lawyer: Annulments
If you are seeking an annulment in the state of California, it is important to understand that California law only allows for an annulment under very specific and limited circumstances. A mere lack of satisfaction in the marriage is not sufficient to warrant an annulment.
A party may seek an annulment if they were less than 18 at the time of marriage, if the marriage involved incest or bigamy, if one of the parties was unable to consummate the marriage or for other reasons set out by California law. The circumstances that warrant an annulment are limited and therefore, a divorce or legal separation may be a necessary alternative in many cases.

If you are seeking an annulment for religious reasons, a legal separation may be an alternative if you are not eligible for an annulment. In a legal separation proceeding, you can seek child custody, parenting time, spousal support, child support and the division of marital property and debts.
