What Is the Difference between a Divorce and an Annulment?
We frequently receive calls asking about how to get an annulment in New Mexico. There are two types of annulments: religious annulments and civil annulments. The two are very different in both how they occur and in their effect on the couple. A religious annulment is granted by a church. For example, the Catholic Church can declare a marriage annulled, or invalid, on grounds established by the Church.
