Annulled marriages occur in civil and criminal courts and are processed through the court system in the same way as divorce cases. Annulment is also a legal process in religious and civil legal systems whereby a marriage is declared null and void. Unlike divorce, annulment is not available through the court system in most jurisdictions. 

Because annulment differs from divorce, there are some differences in the applicable terminology, process and outcomes for these two processes. Annulments differ from marriage registrations in that a marriage certificate is not required to issue an annulment certificate.

Annulment differs from divorce in that an annulment request must be filed with the appropriate county courthouse and must be accompanied by a written statement from either party to prove that the marriage was annulled. A County Court Judge will consider the information submitted and may order the dissolution of the marriage. Usually an application for annulment must be submitted to the family law attorney who handled the divorce, unless the parties agree that they want the county to act on their behalf. If the application for annulment can be submitted without the involvement of the attorney, then the applicant must appoint an attorney who will pursue the application for annulment.

Annulments are available in many jurisdictions and can last for several years or until the marriage ends. In cases of very limited information or when one of the spouses dies, annulments may be granted at any time. Annulments are different from marriages which have been dissolved due to some reasons such as desertion or suicide or by mutual consent not intended to prevent the marriage from being terminated. Many countries allow divorce to happen after a certain period has passed, where in other countries divorce happens immediately.
