questions & answers

Question: I am a Utah native and moved to Arizona about 2 years ago. I got married in AZ in October 2014. I recently have moved back to Utah in January and want to get my marriage annulled and my husband still lives in az. Do I file for annulment in UT or az? It is an az marriage license.

Answer: This information is from the self service center of the Maricopa County Superior Court regarding annulments: Annulment in Arizona: An annulment in Arizona is a judgment of a marriage to be null and void. The annulment legal process requires certain statements to the Court showing reasons the purported marriage is invalid from the beginning, almost as if it had never taken place. You must have a legal reason to file for annulment. 90 DAY Requirement to File for an Annulment in Arizona: You or your spouse must have made Arizona your home, or have been stationed in Arizona while a member of the Armed Forces, for AT LEAST 90 (Ninety) DAYS before you file the Annulment Petition with the Court. If you cannot meet this requirement DO NOT buy these forms and DO NOT file for Annulment at this time. If you are outside of Maricopa County, you may want to check with the county superior court for the forms. Most courts will accept Maricopa County's self service form. You may want to consult with an attorney for more information.
