I have been married for 18 months. I recently found out that my wife had a relationship before our marriage and has been in constant touch with him after marriage. She misrepresented herself to me as if she was a simple, honest person who had no previous relationships. I would have never married her if she had told me the truth before our marriage. Can I file for annulment based on fraudulent misrepresentation?
I do not believe that such misrepresentation would be sufficient to qualify for fraud under the annulment statute. You can, however, sue for divorce, which is the same process as an annulment. If you’re located in the New York City metropolitan area, please give me a call at 212-370-1660 to discuss the matter at greater length.
