Annullment - extreme circumstances


Unfortunately, a drug problem is not one of the statutory requirements that would allow an annulment. She is probably going to have to wait the full 12 months.

Good luck,

My girlfriend in NC was married 6 months ago. They were separated after a few weeks. Since then he has been living with friends. Since they were married, he has gone on 6 crack cocaine binges. She is afraid for her sanity, safety and finances with this man around.
This person could do a lot of damage to her life if she has to wait a year to divorce him.

Please tell me what her options are.

Thank you.
