Annulment

An annulment is an order from the court not only ending the marriage, but also says that the marriage never happened. Like a legal separation, the judge may enter an order as to custody, visitation, child support, property division, debt payment, and other issues. An annulment may be difficult to prove unless the marriage is clearly void under Utah law (such as if your spouse was already married to someone else when you married). In most cases, you must prove that your spouse intentionally withheld information or told you a lie to induce you to marry, and that had you known the truth, you would never have married. The process for an annulment is similar to a divorce.
