Schaumburg Annulments Attorneys
In the state of Illinois, an annulment, referred to as a Declaration of Invalidity of Marriage, will make it as if the parties were never married. The court can provide a civil annulment and the marriage will be effectively erased. As far as the government is concerned, it will be as if you were never married in the first place.

Experienced Rolling Meadows Marriage Annulment Attorneys
There are only a few circumstances that warrant a Declaration of Invalidity of Marriage. Each of these situations has only a short time limit after the marriage ceremony has taken place within which a case must be filed. If the deadline passes, there is no longer a right to an annulment and it is necessary to stay married or seek a legal separation or a divorce.
The grounds that may be used to declare a marriage invalid under Illinois law include:
- Coercion or duress
- Mental incapacity
- Physical incapacity to consummate the marriage
- One party was 16 or 17 and did not have parental consent
- The marriage is otherwise prohibited
Many people who originally seek an annulment do not qualify, and will end up having to go through the divorce process. Our firm can help you determine if you qualify and assist you through whichever option fits your circumstances.
