Board Certified Family Law Specialist Matt Arnold being interviewed on the Legal Forum. This was recorded in Charlotte, North Carolina. Topics discussed include: How to choose a divorce lawyer? How long does a divorce take? How much does a divorce cost? When can a person get an annulment?
When two people decide they want to end their marriage, they usually file for divorce. Divorce, also known as divorce from bed and board, is the most common way to dissolve a marriage. You may have heard of annulment and wonder what it is and whether it is a viable alternative for you instead of divorce. Annulment is a legal end to a marriage that is available only in a limited number of circumstances. Annulment not only ends the marriage but essentially voids it as if it did not exist.
