Can we have the second marriage annulled and the original divorce decree reinstated? We were happy with the terms of the first divorce, so how do we get back there?
First let me preface my answer by stating that I am not licensed to practice in the state of Missouri. Cordell & Cordell has many men's divorce lawyers located throughout Missouri that would be happy to discuss your case with you.
Each state has different rules for annulling a marriage. Most statutes dealing with an annulment are based upon fraud, which I don’t believe applies to your case. More than likely you will need to go through the divorce process again. However, it sounds as if you have the terms worked out, which may make it a simpler process.
You should consult an attorney in your jurisdiction to help you begin the process.
