You cannot get an annulment unless you had a void marriage to begin with. A void marriage is not common (for example, one spouse was too young to consent to marriage, it was a bigamous marriage, one spouse did not have the mental capacity to understand that he/she was entering into a marriage, etc.).

With a valid marriage, you must wait the one-year separation period before being able to proceed with an absolute divorce, even if the marriage only last a few weeks or even a few days.
