What are the California annulment laws?


Answer by  patti (29325)

California law provides for annulment in cases of: mental illness, impotency, bigamy, duress, underage marriage, lack of consent by one party, or consanguinity (marriage to a close family relative).


Answer by  patti (29325)

A marriage in California can be annulled on specific grounds, including duress (threats), lack of assent (both parties did not agree), mental illness (incapacitation), impotency, bigamy (one of the parties is already married), under the age of 14 or 14-18 years without parental consent, consanguinity (marriage between blood relatives). An annulment voids the union as though it never happened.

A marriage can be annulled in California when it was not properly licensed, solemnized, or authenticated. It can also be annulled when it is incestuous, bigamous, induced by fraud or force, or one of the parties is under age of consent.


Answer by  rosieposey78 (1304)

California Family Code 2200 states that marriage is void in cases of incest. Family Code 2201 states that in cases of bigamy with the exception of in case it was thought, perhaps that the other spouse was thought to be deceased. Family Code 2210 states it voidable in cases of incest, force, incapacity, or fraud.
