What are requirements for an annulment in MA?

Additional Information:

I was just married in Milford, MA and now realize it was a mistake. What are requirements for getting an annulment in Massachusetts?

ATTORNEY ANSWER:

An action to anul a marriage can be brought in the probate court if the validity of a marriage is doubted.  The statutory grounds include incest and bigamy, and do not include mistake, although you could obtain an annulment for fraud, impotency, duress or for other reasons.  If the marriage is valid, then the remedy is to obtain a divorce.
