IS ABANDONMENT AND INFIDELITY GROUNDS FOR ANNULMENT?

No... An annulment is only available if there was mistake or someone committed fraud at the time of marriage. What happens *after* you are married has nothing to do with it. Too many people misunderstand this. I get lots of questions from people who have problems after the marriage and think that they can get an annulment. Problems arise and people change their minds and it doesn't mean you can get an annulment. Failure to live up to expectations after marriage is not grounds for an annulment.

An annulment can be contested by either party, which is why it is important to have proof of the grounds for the annulment based on ARTICLE 36, FAMILY CODE(PSYCHOLOGICAL INCAPACITY. Therefore, Infidelity, abandonment and abuse are not grounds for annulment. You can talk or discuss this matter to your family lawyer for any further details for your clarification and understanding on the issue provided here.
