In Colorado, annulment is called a declaration of invalidity. Declarations of invalidity have to meet very specific criteria. Lacking capacity to consent to the marriage at the time of the marriage because of mental incapacity or intoxication, a party being underage without parental consent, entering into a marriage under duress, or a marriage prohibited by law (for example bigamy or incest) are some of the bases for requesting a declaration of invalidity. Lack of physical capacity to consummate the marriage is still a basis for a request for declaration of invalidity as well. For most of the bases to request a declaration of invalidity, there are specific deadlines to raise the issue with the Court.
