ANNULMENT, SEPARATION, & DIVORCE
I was married Nov 6th 2006 ..my husband and I separated Jan 2007... he got a lawyer who said we can file annulment because no one was asking for anything... and started the paperwork...my husband filed "fraud" because he wanted children and I didn't..in Jan 2008 my husband was to appear in court to show proof of fraud. apparently there was an affidavit his lawyer had me sign that was worded incorrectly. the annulment was denied...
My husband is now trying to get his lawyer to refile but his lawyer is refusing without additional money... his lawyer said it's easier to file divorce because we have been separated for a year...
if I go to my own lawyer can I still fie annulment even though it's been a year and a half since we were married...
You can file for an annulment at any time but you must satisfy the “grounds” requirements,
Meaning you must be able to substantiate that there was fraud, underage, etc.
If you are living in the NYC metro area, please call me to discuss arranging for an appointment to mediate your annulment.
