Is it Difficult to Get an Annulment in New York?

Recently a distraught women walked into my office and wanted an Annulment.....

In New York State, it is possible to have a marriage annulled. There has to be a really good reason, like fraud or a material lie that induced one of the parties to enter a marriage. Generally, annulments are more difficult and a little more complicated than getting a divorce. I never try to sway a client either way. If the facts present itself, and it is appropriate, my office will proceed with an annulment. Unless a divorce is against your religion, it has the same practical effect as an annulment. Many people however, want an annulment for emotional reasons.
