If your marriage lacks one of the elements of a valid marriage, then you could get an annulment.
So what is considered a valid marriage?
Alabama Law states:
"No one under the age of fourteen has the capacity to contract marriage. For any one under the age of eighteen, they must have the consent of a parent or guardian. Consent of any marriage can be oral or written and the persons must be of sound mind and not within the prohibited degrees of relation. A person must not be married to another. To file for annulment, contact our divorce lawyers.
TYPES OF DIVORCE
IN ORDER TO FILE ANY TYPE OF DIVORCE YOU MUST BE A RESIDENT OF ALABAMA FOR SIX CONTINUOUS MONTHS AND YOUR SPOUSE MUST HAVE SOME RESIDENTIAL CONNECTION TO ALABAMA.
NON CONTESTED DIVORCE
If you and your spouse have agreed on all of the issues, such as division of marital assets and debts, child custody, child support and child visitation and both of you are willing to come in to the office and sign the divorce documents, then you should contact our divorce lawyers to file for a Non-Contested Divorce.
If you and your spouse can not decide on the division of marital assets and debt, child custody, child support, or child visitation, then you should contact our divorce lawyers to file for Contested Divorce.
