The differences between an annulment and a divorce

Some New York couples who are ending their marriages might qualify for an annulment and not even realize it. In short, a valid marriage is dissolved by a divorce, while an invalid one is erased by an annulment. An annulment basically makes the marriage contract null and void. Therefore, a marriage that has been declared invalid never existed legally, so neither party can rightfully say he or she was formerly married or has an ex-spouse.

Can a divorce settlement protect against future credior claims?

Choosing to end one's marriage is a difficult decision with which comes the challenging task of strategically separating assets. How assets are ultimately divided in a divorce can have a major impact on one's financial future.

Unfortunately, this is not necessarily the case.
