Do I qualify for an anulment


#1

It is very likely that your marriage is legal, because the defect in your marriage license can be cured. You will have to get a divorce, not an annulment. In North Carolina, you must be separated 12 months before you can file for divorce.

Good luck,

My husband and I seperated 2 days ago. I plan to conact a lawyer soon, but have a question. When we got our marriage license, my husband put his step-dad’s name as his father’s name and told the register of deed’s office that he was adopted and never changed his name to his step-dad’s. He was never adopted by his step-dad, just did not want to acknowledge his biological father. Is our marriage legal and can I get an anulment? Any help would be appreciated.
