A Maine marriage annulment is a legal decree nullifying the validity of a marriage. It must be legally petitioned for, and as a rule, is difficult to prove and have adjudicated. To file for an marriage annulment (also known as a marital annulment), you must claim one of the following claims (grounds):

Fraud – If your spouse misrepresented him or herself to obtain your consent for marriage, you can bail out by filing for annulment under Maine annulment laws,

Mental Illness – you are entitled to an annulment if your spouse is mentally incapacitated,

Consanguinity – Marrying someone related too closely to you. It is a marital relationship between full-blood or half-blood relatives e.g. marriage with a natural parent, child, grandparent, grandchild, uncle, aunt, nephew, niece, stepparent, stepchild, adoptive parent, adoptive child, brother, half brother or sister. A less sensitive term would be inbreeding,

Underage Marriages – Minors getting married is a ground for annulment

Impotency – Impotency is a valid annulment ground. You can obtain an annulment if your spouse is impotent.
