Legal Details of Nullity

Oftentimes, people will confuse nullity of a domestic partnership with dissolution or termination of domestic partnership, but it is important to know that these are different legal processes. Unlike a dissolution or termination of domestic partnership, which end the partnership, a nullity of domestic partnership declares it void from the start, allowing both partners to act as if it never existed.

A petition for judgment of nullity of domestic partnership is the formal request by one partner to the Superior Court for the Court to declare the domestic partnership legally invalid, as an annulment does for marriages. A Judgment of Nullity of Domestic Partnership issued by the court will void the domestic partnership and each partner will be considered "single" again. Erasing a domestic partnership can come with complications if domestic partnership agreements included multiple family law aspects. Sometimes it is difficult to reset the pieces.

Annulments for Same Sex Marriages

Would you be better off if your same sex marriage was annulled, rather than seeking a same sex divorce? Our California attorneys have the know-how needed to make this happen. If you can get an annulment, it will often be the best choice.

Annulments of same sex marriages are often:

  • Easier
  • Quicker
  • Less costly

Instead of having to completely plan out how your life will look after a divorce, an annulment of a same sex marriage lets you jump right back to how things were before the marriage became official. The transition can be comparatively painless.
