WHAT IS Difference between DIVORCE
and ANNULMENT OF MARRIAGE
Divorce (or the dissolution of marriage) is the final termination of a marital union by way of a court order, canceling the legal duties and responsibilities of marriage and dissolving the bonds of matrimony between the parties.
A court order of divorce granted under section 8 of the federal Divorce Act is the only way a legally married couple can end their marriage. Therefore a couple can be living separate and apart for many years without a Court Order but still be regarded as legally married. A couple can only remarry upon obtaining a Court Order for Divorce only.
In other words, a divorce is a legal action between married people to terminate their marriage relationship, by way of a Court Order. This is not an annulment of Marriage.
The Concept of Divorce starts where the parties recognize that a legal and valid marriage did exist between the parties but have decided to terminate the legally valid marriage by way of Divorce.
Annulment, on the other hand, means that a legal and valid marriage did not exist in the first place, therefore, Divorce is not required since there is no marriage. For more details and Tips to know the difference between Divorce Vs. Annulment please Click Here.
