Coloradoans who have decided that their marriage is not working out can part ways and get a divorce. In such a circumstance, there is generally no reason to invalidate the marriage completely as if it never happened. However, in some instances, the parties would like to have the marriage declared invalid. There are certain situations in which this can happen. People who want their marriage invalidated should understand the law and have legal assistance in making the goal a reality.
A marriage will be deemed invalid if one party did not have the capacity to give consent when the marriage took place. This can be because the person did not have the mental capacity or was infirm or because he or she was under the influence of an incapacitating substance at the time. The marriage might not have been consummated through sexual intercourse due to a lack of physical capacity to do so with the other party not knowing of this issue when the marriage took place - this is a reason to declare a marriage invalid. A person who was under the age of consent based on the law and did not have the consent of parents or a guardian or approval from the judiciary cannot legally marry and the marriage can be deemed invalid.
