"What is an annulment?"
An annulment is a declaration that an apparently valid marriage is void.
"Is this the same as a religious annulment?"
No. Religious annulments are generally not recognised by the government or courts.
"What are the grounds for an annulment?"
There are many reasons, including:
"I entered into a marriage for immigration reasons - can I get into an annulment?"
Generally no, unless you would meet one of the normal grounds for an annulment.
"My partner does not want to have sexual relations with me - can I get an annulment?"
Generally, no. You could get an annulment because your spouse can't have sexual relations with you, not because your spouse won't have sexual relations with you.
"What are my rights if I get an annulment?"
In Ontario, probably the same as if you were separating.
