Similar to a divorce, an annulment is a court procedure that terminates a marriage. The difference is that an annulment treats the marriage as though it never happened. A divorce ends a valid marriage, whereas nn annulment declares that the marriage never existed. Most annulments take place after a marriage of a very short duration -- a few weeks or months. When a long-term marriage is annulled, most States treat the issues of custody, child support, and property and debt division the same as they would in a regular divorce.
