What are some basic grounds for a legal annulment?

I have learned that my husband was not honest with me regarding his financial situation and family background and would like an annulment, for one he is not Jewish and I am.

Every state determines grounds for divorce/annulment, including residency requirements for filing. Google "annulment" and the state of residence for details.

If there was no fraud involved none of those reasons would be grounds for annulment. You may have to file for divorce if you can't forgive him.

You have a ground for an annulment if you can prove that you didn't know of his financial situation or his family background before you got married. Because you married him under false statements on his part.

If your husband lied to you and tricked you into marrying him, then you will have to prove this. If you have been married for awhile it will be hard to get an annulment. You can state fraud in your divorce, but you will have to prove that he lied to you. Unless he admits it will be hard.
