Question: my husband walked out on me a week after we found out i was pregnant. we had bought a car together and he let his dad put the title in his name without me knowing and a week after we found out i was pregnant he left? what can i do and can i get an annulment?

Answer:

Courts generally grant annulments only in cases where the marriage was void from the start (e.g. bigamy), or voidable (e.g. because one or both of the parties was incompetent to consent to the marital relationship). ARS 25-301 

 In Arizona, a divorce is referred to as dissolution of marriage, and is the most common method to end a marriage. Further information is provided in Title 25, Chapter 3 of the ARS. A divorce case will include the division of property, among other things. Any property acquired during a marriage is considered community property, with the exception of anything acquired through gift, devise, or descent. ARS 25-211 

 ARS 25-214 details spousal management of community property. ARS 25-318 explains how community property is divided in a divorce case when both parties cannot agree on the division of property. Please consult an attorney for further help.
