A declaration of nullity (annulment) is not a “Catholic divorce.” Rather, it is a declaration by a Church tribunal that a marriage thought to be valid according to Church law actually fell short of at least one of the essential elements required for a binding union. Though often misunderstood, the annulment process can in fact be a source of healing after a broken marriage.
Because the annulment process is so unfamiliar to most people, it can seem intimidating at first. But when properly understood and pursued for the right reasons, it can bring about an experience of grace to everyone involved. If you are wondering whether or not the annulment process is right for you, we encourage you to take a look at the Annulments Fact Sheet, provided by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
If you are ready to begin the annulment process, we encourage you to contact the Office of the Tribunal.
