North Carolina law provides for marriages to be annulled in some circumstances. The difference between a divorce and an annulment is whether the marriage was actually valid. Seeking an annulment attorney and getting an annulment decrees that a valid marriage never existed. Divorce ends a marriage that was valid.
Annul a Marriage
Upon proof that a marriage ceremony took place, it is presumed that it was legally performed and resulted in a valid marriage. The burden of proof rests upon the person seeking the annulment to prove by the greater weight of the evidence grounds to void or annul the marriage to overcome the presumption of a valid marriage.
For example, if you learn your spouse was currently married when your marriage ceremony took place, your marriage is void. You can also seek to annul a marriage if you learn that at the time of your marriage your spouse was physically impotent, a minor, or that your marriage was to a person within prohibited degree of kinship (i.e. closer than first cousins).
