Married Less than 90 Days

I have been married less than 90 days. Is there any way to get a divorce without a year of separation? Is annulment a possibility?

There are limited circumstances that allow for one to get an annulment in North Carolina. Here are the circumstances in which you may be granted an annulment:

  1. Marriages between family members
  2. If one party is under age
  3. If one party is impotent
  4. If one party lacks the mental capacity to understand what marriage entails
  5. If one party commits marriage under a false pretense

You’ll note that length of marriage has no bearing on whether you are eligible for an annulment. For more details on this topic, read our article on annulments.
