An annulment under English law is for you if you satisfy one of the following criteria:

Void marriage

  • If either party was already married or in a civil partnership at the time of your marriage
  • If you or your spouse was under 16 at the time of the wedding
  • If you and your spouse were related (this is complex and needs some consideration by an experienced lawyer)

Voidable marriage

  • If either party didn’t or was unable to give valid consent to the marriage
  • If the marriage has not been consummated due to incapacity or the other party’s wilful refusal
  • If your spouse had a communicable form of a sexually transmitted disease when you got married that you were unaware of.
  • If your spouse was pregnant with someone else’s child and you didn’t know about it
  • If either party has transitioned to another gender.

What is an annulment?

An annulment is a legal procedure for declaring a marriage null and void. It has the legal effect of wiping out the marriage as if it never existed.


This fixed price assumes that the other party does not formally object to the annulment and that the Court accepts the application for an annulment. If you expect the case to be disputed by your spouse you should speak to a Woolley & Co family lawyer about your case before booking a fixed fee annulment.

What’s included in the fixed price?

All normal costs associated with obtaining an unopposed annulment.

Our fees: £1,410.00
VAT on our fees: £282.00
Court Fees: £593.00
Total: £2,285.00

You will be allocated a lawyer to handle your case from amongst our team of fully qualified and experienced family law experts.

You will be provided with email, direct dial and mobile telephone contact numbers for your lawyer and be served under our terms and conditions which include a number of guaranteed service standards offered to all clients. Most correspondence will be sent by email to speed up communication.

Work included in the fixed price
We will make an application for an annulment on your behalf and:

  • collect all relevant details from you, complete the nullity application and send it to the Court
  • explain the procedure and timetable to you and help you understand the process
  • consider the acknowledgement of service and draft the application for Conditional Order and statement in support
  • follow and advise on Court procedure to obtain both the Conditional and Final Orders
  • answer your questions and concerns about the annulment process and consequences of getting an annulment
  • advise on the legal implications of annulling your marriage and suggest further steps you may need to take

Court fees

The Court require you to pay standard government fees. These are currently £593.00 payable when the application is filed. This is included in the total fixed price for an annulment above.

Additional fees

You would normally choose to have a lawyer represent you at the final hearing.  We would confirm this cost at the appropriate time, normally on a fixed fee basis.

In most cases the above follows through without difficulty and the time we spend on your case is covered by the fixed fee. In some cases there can be additional issues to be resolved and we do charge extra for this additional work, examples can be: not being able to trace the other party, the other party denying receipt of the papers, needing to obtain a private detective or needing to deal with complicated medical issues..

Any extra costs will be discussed and agreed with you before any work is undertaken.

Why pay a fixed price?

By paying a fixed price at the start of your case you have certainty about the costs involved. Woolley & Co has lawyers experienced in handling annulment cases and dealing with the intricate questions involved.

The alternative is to pay an hourly rate for the time your lawyer spends on your case. We believe you should pay for the work that needs to be done, rather than the time it takes to do it.
