russian speaking criminal defense attorney in New York
Unlike the annulment, where the marriage is voidable, certain marriages are void at the inception. Such marriages include incest and bigamy. In the case of incest, the marriage is between ancestors and descendants, sisters and brothers (of the whole or half-blood). In the case of bigamy, one of the parties to the marriage is already married to another person.
