Aug 8, 2012 by

Question: 

My husband and i have been seperated since November of 2000 after getting married in January of 2000 -would i be able to get a annulment? (MO)

State: 
Missouri

Answer: 

Most probably not. Annulments are rarely applied unless the original marriage itself was invalid for very specific reasons. Being separated (even for years) does not constitute a reason that your marriage is invalid. The court will likely view your situation as a separation or abandonment, but not an invalid marriage. Your best course of action here would be to file for a divorce and not worry about an annulment, it will be far easier to obtain the divorce. – The Divorce.com Team Wendy Jaffe and Divorce.com can only provide general information about divorce.
