Baltimore, MD asked in Family Law and Divorce for Maryland

Q: What is the process of getting an annulment?

I got married in May 2014 and I got a divorce October 2017. How do I proceed in getting an annulment?

// edit: If I was already granted an Absolute Divorce, is there no possible way to get remarried? Or since I got an Absolute Divorce, I am able to get remarried and that would be considered as my second marriage?

A: If you are already divorced, you cannot get an annulment. An annulment is a legal statement that the marriage should not have occurred in the first place based on very specific reasons. If you were granted a divorce, that means there was a legal finding that there was a marriage.
