Annulment Forms

What is an annulment?

An annulment is a court process to declare that the married couple was never legally married, because at the time of the marriage something was so wrong that no legal relationship could be established by marriage.

The following must be met to file for an annulment:

  • You and your spouse have to be an Arizona resident for at least 90 days before filing for an annulment,
  • Your marriage license is not for a "covenant marriage", and
  • You have sufficient grounds for an annulment.

What are the legal grounds to file for an annulment?

Under Arizona law, to be granted an annulment, you have to have a valid reason (grounds). The following are possible options when filing:

  • Absence or mental or physical capacity
  • No vaild marriage license
  • Blood relationship
  • Concealment of prior marital status or still married
  • Duress
  • Fraud
  • Lack of contractual intent
  • Refusal of intercourse
  • Secret attempt not to follow an antenuptial agreement
  • Underage
  • Misrepresentation as to religion
  • Proxy marriage
