Sometimes marriages don’t get a happy ending, even proxy marriages. If you were married by proxy through a Montana double proxy marriage you may qualify for an annulment through Proxy Divorce.
How is an annulment different than a divorce? A divorce is an end to a marriage, an annulment is an eraser that makes it like the marriage never happened. If your proxy marriage ends in divorce, you’re just like half the marriages out there. But, if you’re able to get an annulment the judge’s order goes back in time and undoes the marriage before it even started. Legally, it makes it like the marriage never happened at all.
By using this system, we are able to offer proxy annulments to anyone who was married in a Montana double proxy marriage and now wants to end it. No matter where you are we can dissolve your marriage, no travel required. Based on the information you provide, we will draft your legal paperwork and email it to you. You’ll need to print it out, sign it in front of a notary, and then mail the original to us for filing with the Court. In some cases you may need to call the Court for a brief hearing before your annulment is finalized. But that’s it.
The legal process is technically called a declaration of invalidity of marriage. But it’s the same thing as an annulment, the name that is more common. The benefits of this are obvious. Instead of being divorced, your legal status is never married. Also, no matter where you are you can go through this process without travel. For active duty members of the Armed Forces, it’s a must.
But, there are additional legal requirements you have to meet. The best way to find out if you qualify is to fill out our questionnaire by clicking on this link. Filling out the form is totally free and there’s no obligation. One of our attorneys will review your application and get back to you right away with an assessment of your case and any additional questions or information we need.
Rest assured though, even though a proxy annulment is different than a divorce, it still accomplishes the same things. If the two of you share debt, the declaration of invalidity of marriage (the legal document the judge signs at the end of the process) can divide that debt between the two of you.
The same thing applies to property that the two of you have acquired during you marriage. In a traditional divorce, a major step is dividing the assets. An important thing to remember is that a Proxy Annulment is only available when the two of you agree. So while the end result can be an order dividing your property, it is necessary that you two agree on how to split things up.
We aren’t able to represent spouses who don’t agree on all the terms. But if you do, and if you qualify, then a proxy annulment can divide your assets in the same way as any other divorce.
