Annul a marriage

Apply for an annulment

You can apply to have your marriage annulled as soon as you get married. Unlike divorce, you do not have to wait for a year.

To annul a marriage, fill in a ‘nullity petition’.

Read the supporting notes before you start.

Send 2 copies of the form to your nearest divorce court, and keep your own copy.

Filing a nullity petition form costs £550.

You may be able to get help with court fees if you’re on benefits or a low income.
