A: An annulment may be granted in the Commonwealth of Virginia based on a number of different grounds that make the marriage void or voidable, including but not limited to, fraud or duress, prohibited co-sanguinity, bigamy, incapacity, infancy, impotency, felony conviction, pregnancy by another or conception with another, and prior prostitution. In some instances, the aggrieved spouse must bring the annulment action within 2 years of the marriage or before any cohabitation with the spouse after knowledge of the facts supporting the grounds. Whether these limitations apply to a specific set of circumstances should be discussed with an experienced Virginia divorce lawyer.
