“Annulment” is the word used to refer to a Catholic “declaration of nullity,” when a Church tribunal (a Catholic Church court) declares 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.

 

The Catholic Church presumes that marriages are valid and lifelong; therefore, unless the ex-spouse has died, the Church requires the divorced Catholic to obtain a declaration of nullity before re-marrying. The tribunal process seeks to determine if something essential was missing from the couple’s relationship from the the time of the wedding. If so, then the Church can declare that a valid sacramental marriage was never actually brought about on the wedding day.

The Metropolitan Tribunal of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles processes the annulment requests that are submitted through St. Monica. Learn more at www.la-archdiocese.org/org/tribunal/Pages/default.aspx

Several steps are involved when asking for a declaration of nullity (or annulment) and can take anywhere from twelve months to two years. To start the process, please contact the Parish Office at (310) 566-1500 to set up an appointment.
