- For Attorneys
An annulment is sought in order to nullify the marriage and disavow its existence, returning the parties to their prior single status (as if they were never married).; Spouses cant receive an annulment through mutual agreement. The Court must independently allow an annulment.
Lawyers generally charge an hourly rate in such matters if it is contested. If uncontested, the fee will be considerably less; some estimate in the neighborhood of $1500.
