Board Certified Family Law Specialist Matt Arnold answers the question: “What does a “No-Fault’ divorce mean in NC?”
When you feel that your marriage was a mistake, you may want to end the union. Rather than go through the divorce process, you may be able to obtain an annulment. An annulment is a civil legal process that ends the marriage and makes it as though the union did not happen. An annulment is not the same as a religious annulment, which does not legally end the marriage. There are a number of reasons that you may seek an annulment, but there are also limited reasons that an annulment may be granted. The first step in the process is to determine whether your circumstances qualify for annulment in North Carolina.
