Can I Annul If We Married While My Spouse Was In Prison, And Hasn’t Been Out Since?

Imprisonment on its own isn’t grounds for annulment, which typically requires a showing of fraud or other voidable (or void) circumstance.

However, if you married with the reasonable expectation that your spouse would be free in a certain period of time, and have reason to believe that your spouse misled you about that time frame, or is taking actions to extend a sentence to avoid participating in the marriage, there may be a case to be made for annulment.

If you believe your marriage was founded on a fraud, you have recourse in New York courts.
