What is the difference between a divorce and an annulment?

An annulment you get if you’ve been married for a few days or hours and a divorce is if you’ve been married for a while, am I right? or wrong? or a little off?

    An annulment is a declaration that there never was a marriage.

    A divorce recognizes a valid marriage and provides for property distribution.

    Your right..usually an annulment is when you married for like 6 months and want to divorce..but anything over that it will be considered a divorce..but it all depends on the state your living in they have certain requirements…like i believe here in Florida if your married and its not yet 6 months you will have to file for an annulment..hope this helps

    In the state I live in after a short marriage, when information surfaces that would have prevented the marriage from happening in the first place if it had ben known beforehand is grounds for a annulment.

  4. Barb Outhere says:

    A divorce is the dissolution of a legitimate marriage.
    An annulment is virtually/legally saying no legitimate marriage existed.
    Sometimes you can be married a short while, and still require a divorce. Sometimes you can be married a while and get an annulment – say the marriage was never consummated, and/or you never shared a life together.
