In response to the divorce petition filed by Kim Kardashian, on December 1, 2011, the lawyer for Kris Humphries filed his response and included a request for a declaration of “nullity of marriage” or what is commonly known as an annulment. Humphries’ filing, in the Superior Court of California, claims that Kim Kardashian fraudulently induced him to marry her. Many people have asked:
What is the legal difference between a divorce and an annulment; and
Why would Humphries seek an annulment as opposed to simply seeking a divorce.
