The simple answer to your question is "Yes", if your marriage is annulled, then it's as though you were never married. In California, it is not that easy to get a marriage annulled, as there generally has to be some allegation of fraud. A marriage is voidable if you are married to someone who is still legally married to someone else. This is a very complicated area of the law and you should consult with a Family Law Attorney. Good luck.

There is no such thing as a "record" per-se. Regardless of whether you file for divorce or annulmnent, the filing will appear in the public records. Further, you have to meet specific guidelines to qualify for an annulment. If you are in my area and looking for an attorney, please contact me for a free consultation.
