Yes, bigamy is grounds for an annulment in New York. Legally, a bigamist marriage is void from inception, but the elements of your (void) marriage will need to be decided in a similar fashion that they would for divorce.
Matters of child custody, equitable distribution, spousal and child support, legal fees, and all the other considerations handled by the courts when a marriage dissolves through divorce are in play.
To get an appropriate settlement when you discover that your marriage was founded on fraud, it’s important that you work with experienced annulment attorneys.
The burden of proof in annulment cases is higher than in divorce, and it’s important that your filings correctly address the legal issues the court needs to see.
