Good day!
I got married because i got pregnant i was 22 then and my husbnd is 23 But when we went to court, the secretary of the judge offered a marriage with no documents and told us to make it fast .Because we want it fast we just agreed. And the one check in the family code is that we are living for five years already. But that was not true. Can i apply for voidity. And what are the things needed for it.
We are separated for 4 years now we dont see each other and no communication and we had a child. I wanna marry other man soon.
Can it be grounds for voidity. How long would the process would be? And what do i need for the case? ANd how much would that be?(estimate)

Yes, since you were not really living together for 5 years before you got married, your marriage is void. But before you can marry again, you will need to get a court declaration that your marriage is void. The evidence you will need for this court action are your marriage contract, you and your husband's affidavit that you have been living together for 5 years, witnesses other than yourself as to when your relationship has started and that you have, in fact, not lived together for that long. Witnesses could be your family members, friends, his friends, officemates, neighbors, etc. who have personal knowledge (have seen you and your husband to be not living together) to support your claims and petition.

The entire proceedings may take about 1-2 years, depending on the number of documents, witnesses to be presented in court.

As for the costs, you may email me directly on
