Divorce & Annulment

questions & answers

Question: Do I need to get annulment from my two month marriage. I recently found out I have been married for the past 9 years to another man that I thought I was divorced from. The original husband is a Veteran and although I might not be eligible for benefits because I left 9 years ago, I need to know if I can still apply for benefits being currently married. Does this 2 month marriage exist?

Answer:

The court may have the ability to annul your 2-month marriage and the pleadings are similar to a divorce proceeding. Depending on the actual facts, you may not have to “undo” your current marriage. You may want to review the answers of some previously posted questions that discuss annumlment, such as the question that explains the differences between annulment and divorce and the question that discusses the basics of annulment.

You may want to contact an attorney to help you sort through the two marriages, and especially for help determining eligibility for benefits.
