1. yes it can a be a ground to void the marriage (has to happen through court).
2. possible but hard to tell without all details. this can be discussed with his lawyer.
3. depends on how old was he at the time of wedding.

1. The surefire ground to get a declaration of nullity is to prove minority at the time of the marriage. Only persons of legal age can marry.

All the others you are talking about, force or intimidation, lack of parental consent - those grounds expire, and are totally irrelevant, impertinent and immaterial once you prove minority. They are time-bound and they are things that you have to prove depending on your witnesses.

2. As to the falsification - well, why did he not complain after? He was also a party to the provision of false material information so he likewise had the responsibility to tell the truth at the time.

Jadis, that is a very clear explanation. I really appreciate too. He was only 19 yrs old and the marriage took place in 1994. They added some yrs to his age to make it appear he was of legal age.

At his age, he was scared and afraid... he knew nothing about the law and no one advised him To do the right thing. You kmow what I mean? So the marriage did not get to the point of annulment. The law is good, but I think it also make some things so complicated.

Thank you so much for the help.
