  • WHAT'S THE LEGAL DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ANNULMENT AND DIVORCE? Louise Banks - Sep 2008 START
  • An ANNULMENT is a legal procedure which cancels a marriage between a man and a woman. Annulling a marriage is as though it is completely erased - legally, it declares that the marriage never technically existed and was never valid.
  • A DIVORCE, or legal dissolution of a marriage, is the ending of a valid marriage between a man and a woman returning both parties to single status with the ability to remarry. View slide
