What are the Limits of Getting an Annulment on the Basis of Fraud?

Many times clients who have become frustrated with the process of a divorce ask about the opportunity to get an annulment based on fraud.  This is a valid ground for voiding a marriage only if the fraud goes to the “very essence of the marital relation.”  It is not enough that the person you thought was kind ended up being a grouch.  Valid reasons include concealed sterility or pregnancy, concealed intent to live separate from the other spouse, failure to engage in intimate relations with the spouse, marriage just for a green card, or not having children despite promises to the contrary.  Contact Sagaria Law today to schedule an initial consultation if you want to find out if your reasons justify an annulment on the basis of fraud.
