- Were you under the age of 18 at the time of the marriage;

Many people think of annulments as being common, but in truth, they are not. A marriage must meet specific grounds in order to be eligible for an annulment and in many cases, the spouse seeking the annulment must prove their case.
If an annulment in miami is granted, the Court has the same ability to divide assets, award alimony, custody (now called timesharing in Florida) and child support as if the case were a divorce.
