Decree of Nullity (annulment) PDF Print E-mail

The Catholic Church teaches us that marriage is an intimate, exclusive and permanent partnership of a man and a woman which exists for the good of the spouses and the procreation of children.  The Catholic Church cannot ignore the reality of separation and divorce in our society.  The Church must reach out to those who are struggling with the pain of a broken marriage.

WHAT IS A DECREE OF NULLITY?

A Decree of Nullity, also called an Annulment, is a declaration issued by the Catholic Church, through its Marriage Tribunal, that a given marriage is invalid (not binding) because some essential element of marriage was lacking at the time of the exchange of consent.

Annulments are not Catholic divorces. A Catholic Decree of Nullity states that, in the eyes of the Church, there was never a bond established. Since the Catholic Church recognizes all marriages (of Catholics and of others) with few exceptions, the Church’s nullity process is a way of helping persons come to peace in themselves, and with the community of the Church, after a marriage has broken down.
