What is the legal time frame required to file for an annulment?

The time limit for filing an annulment varies depending on the state and the reason for the annulment

In general, you must ask for the annulment within the first five years of the marriage. However, each of the four reasons for annulment have different time limits on them:
  • For the inability to consent, the limit is 90 days after finding out about the described condition.
  • For the inability to consummate, the limit is one year after the marriage.
  • For underage marriages, the limit is until the underage party turns 18.
  • For marriages that violated the 30-day waiting period for remarriage after divorce, you must file for annulment within one year after you were married.
  • For marriages that violated the 72-hour waiting period after getting license, you must request an annulment within 30 days after the ceremony.
