  1. Your marriage is void "ab initio", or "from the start". You need to talk to an attorney to file an annulment immediately.

    Responding to questions on AVVO does not establish an attorney-client relationship between the questioner and any attorney associated with Garrett Law Group, PLC. Responses should be considered and used for informational purposes only. Every case is unique in its facts, and all legal matters should be discussed with a licensed attorney prior to making any decisions or taking any actions.


  2. I have handled several cases recently concerning the same issue. Good News- your marriage is void and you would receive an annulment.
