Hello! In this article I will tell you about what are the grounds for declaring a marriage invalid.

Grounds for declaring a marriage invalid in Ukraine

The conditions of marriage are contained in the Family Code of Ukraine. If any of the conditions is not met, the couple is denied registration of the union. However, sometimes the spouses (or one of them) manage to mislead the registry office staff, as a result of which the marriage is registered, despite the existence of obstacles. Such a marriage can be declared invalid in court.

Conditions for recognizing marriage as invalid in Ukraine

The conditions of marriage are specified in the Family Code of Ukraine. Such norms are necessary to ensure the strength and stability of marriage. Their violation suggests that the union may be declared illegal after its conclusion, if it turns out that these conditions have been violated.

Marriage is subject to a number of basic conditions:

  • diametrical sexes, since marriage in Ukraine can only be concluded between a “man-woman” couple;
  • voluntary consent of both partners to register a marriage – reciprocity and voluntariness of marriage implies the adoption by partners of a conscious and free decision, dictated by sincere feelings for each other;
  • compliance with the age of persons wishing to enter into marriage, the minimum threshold value.

If there is no voluntary consent between the partners, then the presence of such circumstances is called a vice of the will.

Signs that indicate a non-voluntary decision on the part of the spouse include:

  • threats, including psychophysical impacts;
    fraudulent actions;
  • the inability to exercise control over their actions and adequately perceive them (for example, when intoxicated);
  • misrepresentation associated with incomplete or distorted information about a partner.

In order to establish the fact of mutual and voluntary consent of partners (as well as the fulfillment of other conditions), official registration of relations is carried out only if the following requirements are met:

  • by submitting an application in writing;
  • only with the personal presence of both citizens when registering a marriage;
  • the impossibility of concluding a marriage by representatives of persons wishing to enter into it.

These requirements allow the employees of the registry office to check the circumstances of the marriage, to make sure that all the necessary requirements are met. However, in the event that the grooms manage to deceive the employees of the state body and hide information that prevents the registration of relations, it will be possible to recognize such a marriage as invalid from the moment of conclusion only in court. Until this happens, the marriage will be considered valid.
