A: Annulment and divorce are legal processes that address the end of a marriage. An annulment is a legal declaration that a marriage is considered void or never valid from the beginning. In your case, if you meet the criteria for annulment and both parties agree, it might be a viable option. Annulments are generally faster than divorces, and the time it takes can vary depending on the court's schedule and the complexity of your case. On the other hand, divorce is a legal termination of a valid marriage and may involve a slightly longer process.
