Basis for Annulment in California

Most people have the common misconception that a marriage can be annulled (aka nullity of marriage) if you've only been married a few days. In California, this is not a proper legal basis to annul and marriage.

If you are requesting an annulment in California, it must be because of one of the following:

  1. Prior existing marriage
  2. Unsound mind
  3. Fraud
  4. Force
  5. Physical incapacity
  6. Age at time of marriage
