Q: If I got married and have proof that he lied(consent by fraud) can i get annualment & how?
When i married my legal husband he promised that he was drug free and he seemed like he was about 4 months into the marriage he was fired from a job bc he never did the new hire drug test. a week or so later we separated because i couldnt take the lies anymore. i havent seen him in almost a year and a half and he reached out to me on facebook here recently and admitted to being placed into a drug rehab(court ordered due to trouble he got into) and has been clean for the past 9 months. Based on what i have said could i get an annulment or do i have to do divorce?????
A: You an file for an Annulment based on fraud or in the alternative, Divorce. You will probably need to hire an attorney to assist you with this matter. Good luck.
