Make several copies of your forms and bring the originals to the court with your filing fees. You should file for an annulment in the Probate and Family Court for the county where either of you live. However, if either spouse still lives in the county where you had lived together, you must file in that county. Find your Probate and Family Court.
You'll need to let your spouse know that you've filed by arranging for them to be served with a copy of the complaint that you filed, a notice, and a domestic relations summons. These are papers that tell your spouse what's happened and what will happen next. The court will give you the notice and summons when you file your papers, but you need to arrange to have the papers served. This is called service of process.
Once you've served your spouse with the proper paperwork, the judge will decide whether an annulment will be granted. Judges will look very carefully at the specific reasons that an annulment can be granted. In some ways, this makes an annulment more difficult to get than a divorce.
