The process of an annulment is similar to that of dissolution in that a petition is filed. The petitioner requests that the court enter a judgment of nullity to void the marriage based upon incest, bigamy, underage spouse, prior existing marriage, unsound mind, fraud, force or physical incapacity. When an annulment is granted, it is as if the parties were never married. There are no community debts or property. Each party has his or her separate property unless one party can prove that he or she qualifies as a putative spouse status.
