How do I start the Annulment Process?

The best way to begin the process is to contact your current pastor. He or someone in the parish that has been trained to assist you have the forms and the experience to guide you through the process.

You may also contact the Tribunal for clarification of any questions you may have.

We strongly suggest contacting your local parish for guidance on which set of forms is required for your particular situation, before you decide that the process is too complicated.
