How To Prepare Nullity Of Marriage | Santa Clarita Divorce
Hi! This is Tim Blankenship, owner of SCV Legal Doc Assist. We’re a licensed and bonded legal preparation service, headquarter is at Santa Clarita and serving all of California.
Today I want to talk to you about completing a nullity of your marriage.
We recently successfully helped this client and his wife complete a nullity of their marriage and this was based on having a prior existing marriage. The wife got a prior existing marriage. She got married; it was a 6 year marriage. They’ve been separated for several years and have three kids together and we’re able to help them get their divorce nullified because the spouse was married at the time she got married to this gentleman.
That’s one of the reasons that a marriage can be avoided.
This couple had actually spent over $25,000 prior to obtaining services to help them with an attorney trying to get this done and they were unable to successfully negotiate that. We were able to do that for a flat fee. Both spouses were in agreement which was obviously helpful. They were not contesting it. If it were contested you’d probably need an attorney because one party is going to argue that it shouldn’t be nullified and the other one wants it nullified. In this case, both parties were in agreement. They gave all their testimony to that effect as well as preparing declarations indicating that they were in agreement; that they have the divorce nullified and that the spouse was married prior to getting married again.
So we were able to get that done for them for a flat fee. In most cases, if you’re going through nullity of marriage, you’re probably going to, at least, need a consultation with an attorney, and if it’s going to be contested, you certainly will need an attorney.
I’d work for a law firm for several years and not once did we have a nullity come through our office. So we’re pretty happy when we’re able to successfully get this judgment of this nullity of marriage done being a non-law firm and you’re doing it for a cost that is affordable for these clients after spending so much money with an attorney.
