There are various ground upon which an annulment or a divorce could be granted by a court. The legal consequences could be very important, since an annulment basically erases a marriage, whereas a divorce simply terminates it. With a divorce, even a short one, the division of assets may be subject to divorce laws in your state. With an annulment, divorce laws don’t even come into play because the marriage is deemed never to have happened.
