  Annexation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Annexation (Latin ad, to, and nexus, joining) is the legal incorporation of some territory into another geo-political entity (either adjacent or non-contiguous).
Annexation may be the consequence of a voluntary cession from one state to another through purchase or other treaty, or of conversion from a protectorate or sphere of influence, or occupation through military conquest.
The assumption of a protectorate over another state, or of a sphere of influence, is not strictly annexation, the latter implying the complete displacement in the annexed territory of the government or state by which it was previously ruled.

 Tharrington Smith, LLP: Annexation   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Annexation of territory into a city can occur three ways: by act of the legislature; by the voluntary request to be annexed by the affected property owners; and involuntarily, by action of the city council.
The philosophy of the involuntary annexation law is simple: For orderly growth, a city should be able to add territory when that area has become urbanized — and once the territory is added, the city should be obligated to provide services at the same level as within the existing city.
If the annexation record submitted by the city to the court shows substantial compliance, the burden is on the protestors to show that the statutory requirements were not met and that their substantive rights were materially prejudiced as a result.
