Is cheating no longer grounds for an annulment??

DH admitted to cheating on me during our marriage -in writing- that he had sex with someone else during our marriage.

I am googling like crazy because we don't want to go with a costly divorce (we have no children, debts, property, etc to split) and were married less than a year. Does anyone know how to go about the annulment process and if we even qualify? We are in SC. Thanks!

What are the Grounds for Annulment?South Carolina Law provides for several specific circumstances under which the family law court will grant an annulment. Most marriages will not meet these specialized criteria, but if you believe your marriage may qualify under one of the following grounds, you should consult a South Carolina divorce lawyer about this option.Underage Marriage:If either you or your spouse were younger than the age allowed for marriage in South Carolina and you did not obtain the required parental permissions.Fraud:A marriage that has occurred under fraudulent terms can be annulled in South Carolina. An example of fraud would be if a woman were pregnant with another man’s child at the time of the marriage, but told her future husband that the child was his.Bigamy:It is not legal to be married to more than one person at time, so if you or your spouse were legally married to someone else when you married each other, the marriage is void.Mental Incapacity:If you or your spouse were suffering from any type of legally recognized form of mental incapacitation at the time of the union the marriage contract would be void for lack of consent.Failure to Consummate Marriage:If you or your spouse is unable to consummate the marriage, you may qualify for an annulment. However, if you have actually lived together then the court may consider that you have ratified the marriage. See the case law below.Duress:If the marriage was entered into under the threat of force, either spouse could apply for an annulment in South Carolina.You will need to be able to prove these claims in court. Proof will need to be more than just the word of even both spouses. The family law court will require independent proof before granting an annulment. In most cases it is actually easier to proceed with a no fault divorce. A South Carolina family law attorney can explain your options and assist you in deciding between your legal options for ending the marriage.

If its an easy divorce than it shouldn't cost too much. Here in AR you can file the papers yourself for $165

I needed a lawyer because of custody issues, but the rest was easy because we had no joint stuff
