I have given many consultations where the person believes he or she is entitled to a nullity or annulment. They have a misconception that courts freely and often hand out nullity judgments. This could not be further from the truth. A nullity (or annulment) is the most uncommon and one of the most difficult judgments to obtain in family law. A judgment for nullity essentially means that the marital relationship never existed. Courts do not want to grant these judgments and they are difficult to get. The issue is generally bifurcated or in other words, there is a separate trial on the issue. A nullity can be brought by the spouse or a guardian which is generally the case if the spouse is incapacitated or a minor.
