What Is the Difference Between an Annulment and a Divorce in New York?

An annulment is different from a divorce in that it does not simply end the marriage – it goes one step further to declare marriage legally void, rendering it void from inception.

In other words, annulling a marriage makes it as though the marriage never happened. A New York annulment may only be brought to dissolve a voidable marriage.

What Qualifies You for an Annulment?

In New York, there are several reasons you may qualify for an annulment. These grounds must be proved to a court to move forward, but what exactly qualifies for an annulment?

According to the New York Domestic Relations Law §140(e), an annulment can be issued for several reasons, including:

  • Still legally married to the previous spouse
  • One or both spouses are permanently unable to engage in sexual intercourse
  • One or both parties are under the age of consent
  • A party suffers from mental retardation or mental illness
  • Physical incapacity
  • The marriage is incestuous
  • Consent by force, fraud, or duress
  • Incurable mental illness for more than five years

What Is the Eligible Time Frame for an Annulment in NY?

In the state of New York, there is a three-year time period in which an annulment can be sought, starting from the date of the discovery of the falsification of the marriage. If you are seeking an end to your marriage and qualify for an annulment, you can claim the status of “single” instead of “divorced” in order to avoid the social scrutiny of having a “failed marriage”.
