Can I get an annulment in California if I have been married for 4 months but I have left my wife and been gone for 1 month? Also there was fraud done on my seperate bank account prior to the mariage and forged checks with my signature after I left without my consent. I feel as though she married me to acquire credit and obtain services under my name because I have learned that she ruined her credit and is unable to aquire anything under her own name?

Fraud is one of the many grounds to have a marriage annulled. However, the alleged misrepresentation or concealment must have been "vital to the relationship," directly affecting the purpose of the deceived party in consenting to the marriage. In other words, one party’s misrepresentation induced the other party to marry.
