At Bamberger & Brancato, PSC, our legal team understands how emotionally charged separations are and can provide you with compassionate and thorough legal guidance—listening to your needs and providing you with options in your family law matter.

When Can an Annulment Be Filed in Kentucky?

In Kentucky, an individual can file for an annulment under specific circumstances. One of these is when there's evidence of fraud—this means that one spouse was tricked into the marriage. Duress, another ground for annulment, refers to a situation where coercion was involved in the marriage.

Impotence, or inability to have sexual intercourse, is also a valid ground for an annulment if it was not disclosed before the marriage. Mental incompetence at the time of marriage, where one or both parties lacked the mental capacity to comprehend the nature and responsibilities of marriage, can also be a reason for annulment. Additionally, if the law prohibited the marriage at the time of filing, such as in instances of incest, there are grounds for annulment.

In the state of Kentucky, there's no explicit time limit imposed by the law for filing an annulment, unlike in some other jurisdictions. However, it's important to note that the courts tend to favor granting annulments in cases where the marriage was of very short duration. This is because the longer the marriage, the more difficult it can become to convince a judge that the union was invalid from the start. As such, it's generally recommended that individuals seeking an annulment should proceed as quickly as possible after the grounds for annulment become apparent. Consulting with an experienced Kentucky attorney can provide more accurate timeline information based on the specifics of your case.
