Annulment in Indiana

A judgment of annulment (called a nullity) to a marriage effectively treats it as never having occurred. One must petition the court in much the same way as divorce, except that an annulment requires a greater burden of proof than does a divorce. Grounds for annulment in Indiana include:

  • If you have been threatened, coerced or compelled (under duress) into a marriage
  • Fraud or misrepresentation
  • Incest (consanguinity) by marrying a person too closely related
  • Unable to consummate the marriage
  • Your spouse has some mental illness, permanent or temporary, or
  • If your spouse was already married (bigamy)
