necessity of proving one of the parties guilty of marital misconduct.
Nullity of Marriage - This action can be filed by a married person to restore the parties to the
status of unmarried persons, as if they were never married. Certain conditions must be met before
the Court will consider the marriage as void or voidable. Regardless of how the case proceeds, the
Petitioner, the person who initiated the case, will have the burden to prove to the Court that one of
the conditions for nullity has been met before the Court will grant the nullity of marriage. The Court
can also issue orders regarding property and debt division, custody and support.
Non-Custodial Parent – The parent with whom the children do not live the majority of the time.

wage withholding payments received and sent by the State Disbursement Unit (SDU)
