After an annulment in California what happens? If your marriage or registered domestic partnership has been annulled, then that means that the relationship was never valid and you might not have certain rights and obligations available to you as you would if you were legally separated or divorced.
When your annulment involves children, because your marriage or domestic partnership is now considered void, you will need to get a judge to validate the parentage of the children that you had together with your partner. You can do this by getting a DNA test and with the results the judge will then sign a court order stating the legal parentage of the children.
With this court order, you can then ask for a child support order, and /or get a child custody/visitation hearing. This will also be helpful to the child in the future, allowing for things like access to family meidal histories, and the right to inherit from both parents.
When concerning your property and debts in and annulment, the Californian laws dealing with community property do not apply. Therefore you cannot use site this law as a means to divide your debts and property that you've collected during your marriage or domestic partnership. Getting an annulment also means that you waive all your rights to collecting spousal/partner support as well as rights to a part of the other person's pension.
