Mississippi Annulment Attorney

Mississippi Annulment of Marriage Laws

If you are married and are considering annulment, it is important to talk to a family law attorney about your options and your legal rights in this matter. Annulment is only possible in certain circumstances, and it can be a complex process that could involve issues related to property division, child custody, alimony, and child support.

At Chinn & Associates, we realize that any family law matter, particularly one involving the end of a marriage, may be very difficult to deal with. We work closely with our clients to determine whether an annulment is truly the best option and carefully prepare their complaints and cases to help them secure their desired results in a timely manner.

Contact Jackson annulment attorney Mark Chinn at (601) 202-5594 to talk about your case.

What are Valid Reasons for Annulment?

Having a marriage annulled means a legal decree is issued that states that the marriage was never valid. With an annulment in Mississippi, the marriage is declared null and void, as though it had never occurred in the first place. Annulments are only granted for specific circumstances, such as mental illness.

Under Mississippi Code Title 93, Chapter 7 “Annulment of Marriage,” the following are valid reasons for annulment:

  • The marriage was bigamous or incestuous. If one or both spouses were already married at the time of the marriage in question, or if spouses are too closely related, this provides automatic grounds for annulment.
  • One of the following circumstances existed at the time of the marriage ceremony:
  • Incurable impotency;
  • Adjudicated mental illness or incompetence;
  • Failure to comply with marriage license requirements;
  • Inability to consent to marriage due to age or disability;
  • Marriage entered into by force, coercion, or fraud; or
  • Pregnancy of the wife by another person, without the husband’s knowledge.

Complaints about annulment may be filed in the county where either spouse resides, or in the county in which the marriage license was issued. Mississippi chancery courts have jurisdiction over annulment, with the same rules and procedures that apply to divorce cases. When applicable, the court may rule upon matters of child custody, support, and property distribution in an annulment and may change orders regarding these matters in the future.
