An annulment is quicker than getting a divorce but there are several requirements you must meet in order to get your marriage annulled. Usually, the marriage must be based on fraud. Without extenuating circumstances you will not be able to get an annulment.

    If you have ground for an annulment the judgment is final when it is signed. On a dissolution the judgment is final from 6 months from the date of service of the Summons and Petiition.

    Annulment is quicker as long as you meet the tests. No six month waiting period.
