Julie Ketterman, Houston Marriage Annulment Lawyer, has represented and advised thousands of individuals with Family Law issues, including annulments, in Harris, Galveston, Brazoria, Ft. Bend, Matagorda, Chambers, Montgomery, Fort Bend and Waller counties.

Julie has handled marriage annulments in Texas due to bigamy, an underage partner, a marriage when a partner was under the influence, a partner was involved in a recent past divorce, a marriage which took place too fast after getting the license, due to impotency, due to fraud, due to duress, or due to force, incapacity or partners being too closely related.

Family Lawyer Julie Ketterman’s, goal is to resolve your annulment issues quickly and to save you the trauma of litigation. Julie believes that an annulment does not have to be a traumatic, combative experience.

Your decision will impact everyone’s future; therefore, experience working with married couples combined with Family Law knowledge and wisdom will be key factors to making the correct decisions. 


With an annulment, a Texas court issues a judgment that your marriage never existed and that it was invalid under the law and will not be recognized. Ending a marriage by annulment erases that marriage as if it never legally happened. Texas statutes allow an annulment only in certain circumstances and only if proper evidence is provided.

Texas law only allows a marriage to be annulled if, at the time of the marriage:

  • Underage - one party was under the age of 14 years old,
  • Under the Influence - the person petitioning the court for the annulment was under the influence of alcohol or narcotics at the time,
  • Recent Past Divorce - one party concealed that they were divorced within 30 days before this marriage,
  • Marriage Too Fast After Getting the License - the marriage took place less than 72 hours after the license was issued,
  • Impotency - one of the married persons suffers from permanent impotency;
  • Fraud, Duress, or Force - the marriage occurred due to fraud, duress, or force;
  • Incapacity - one of the married persons suffers a mental incapacity,
  • Too closely related - the married couple are too closely related (you cannot marry your parent, your child, your sibling, your aunt, uncle, nephew, or niece); or
  • Already Married - one of the married persons is already married to another (bigamy)
