Grounds for Annulment in the State of Utah

To have a Utah marriage annulled, the couple must prove that their marriage was never valid from the beginning. This means the couple must show that they would never have gotten married if they knew certain information about the other party before marriage. There is no minimum or maximum marriage length for an annulment in Utah.

A marriage can be annulled for a few reasons, including:

  • Mental health history
  • Child born out of wedlock
  • Fraud and misrepresentation
  • Incest between spouses
  • Underage spouse
  • Spouse had another marriage (bigamy)
  • Impotence

How is Annulment Different from Divorce?

An annulment declares the marriage void from the onset, which confers a few benefits to each party.

  • An annulled marriage may allow for the reinstatement of ended benefits, such as an alimony payment from a previous marriage.
  • Annulments generally allow for a much cleaner financial separation compared to a divorce.

Even with an annulment, some purchased property may be divided between the ex-spouses.

Annulments with Children

Parents who have had their marriage annulled still have all the parental rights conferred by a marriage. This means that parents may need to create a child custody agreement and calculate child support payments.
