Annulment in Las Vegas

By Gordon Law Offices  May. 4, 2011 2:13p

More than 100,000 weddings take place in Las Vegas each year, it’s no wonder that sin city is the marriage capital of the world. Las Vegas weddings are fast, simple and cheap. A couple can obtain a marriage license for about $50 and, it can be obtained without the hassle of a blood test or a waiting period. In addition, many wedding chapels in Vegas are “one stop shops,” meaning you can get the chapel, the officiant and the floral bouquet, all for one small price. People even come to Las Vegas to partake in their very own “theme weddings” such as Elvis, Star Trek, pirate and gondola weddings.

 Marriage licenses issued in Clark County, the county in which Las Vegas is located, are recognized as legitimate in every state across the nation. That means, just because a marriage happens in Vegas, doesn’t mean it stays in Vegas. From traditional formal weddings, to drive through ceremonies, marriage in Las Vegas is legally valid in all 50 states.

What if the Marriage Was a Mistake?

There is no lack of things to do in Las Vegas; it is certainly the ultimate “adult playground.” Unfortunately when alcohol is flowing, and when money is being thrown around, and people are in a temporary euphoric state, they have a tendency to fling themselves into marriage on a whim. Sometimes it isn’t until days afterwards, when they return to real life, do they realize that they either don’t really know the person that they married, or they realize that they were married while they were heavily intoxicated. If you are seeking an annulment, contact a Las Vegas family law attorney for legal advice.

Quickie marriages can have their place, especially for those people who have been planning on marrying for a long time. For some, when they are tempted by the convenience of a fast and easy marriage, they do things they wouldn’t normally do under normal circumstances. This is where “annulment” enters into the equation. Annulment is different than divorce, in that it makes it as if the marriage never existed, at least in the eyes of the law. There are two requirements for an annulment in Nevada and they are: either at least one of the spouses had to be residents of the state for at least six weeks prior to filing or, the spouses must have been married in the state of Nevada.
