The task of ending a marriage is never easy. There are ways to end your marriage without an ugly, time-consuming divorce. An annulment is a way to dissolve your marriage, declaring it null and void. It doesn't require the use of lawyers, and it usually takes a couple of days to a week to end the marriage once you file. To qualify for an annulment you must prove that the marriage was based on fraud of some kind. According to codes.ohio.gov, a marriage can be annulled if one individual was under the legal marrying age, one party was still married to another individual, one was mentally incompetent, the marriage was obtained by fraud (lying or withholding information from the spouse) by either party or if consent to the marriage was obtained by force. Various websites let you file an annulment and start your new life.
