Annulments

Annulments are not frequently granted in Arkansas; however, if you meet certain requirements, you may obtain an annulment.  Essentially, an annulment, or an annulled marriage, means that a legally valid marriage never existed.

 

Arkansas Code Annotated § 9-12-201 provides the grounds for obtaining an annulment in Arkansas:

 

  • Consent to marry was obtained through fraud;

  • Consent to marry was obtained through force;

  • At the time of the marriage, because of physical causes, one or both parties were incapable of entering into the marriage;

  • At the time of the marriage, one or both parties were mentally incapable of consenting to the marriage;

  • At the time of the marriage, one or both parties did not meet the legal age requirement for marriage; and 

  • A bigamous marriage (marrying a person who is still legally married to another).
