Grounds for Marriage Annulments
Unlike a divorce which is "no fault" in Nevada, you must have "Grounds" for the Marriage Annulment. Grounds are a valid legal reason for the Annulment. The following is a partial listing:
Inability to Consent - If either party was intoxicated when the marriage took place.
Lack of Understanding - If you rushed into the marriage without discussing important issues such as children, living arrangements, religious issues, financial considerations, etc.
Fraud - If the consent to marry was given under a false representation of having children together, sharing religious beliefs, immigration issues, living arrangements, financial support, etc.
