If you learn that your marriage is void from inception, then it never happened. Situations like this can occur when a divorce one spouse believed was finalized never was, but they remarried later.
Another circumstance would be that the officiant at the wedding was not authorized to solemnize your union, meaning that the marriage itself was never legally entered into.
When one learns that their marriage is void, they may ask the court for what is known as an Action To Declare The Nullity of a Void Marriage.
This allows the spouse to formally void the marriage, and to enforce their rights to child custody, division of assets, and more.
