There are many questions about annulments out there. Please find some helpful information below.
Which type of Annulment is right for me?
Lack of Canonical Form: Myself or my former spouse is a baptized Catholic AND ALSO did not get married in front of a Catholic Priest or Deacon in a church. Note: If your marriage were later convalidated, you would need a Formal Case.
Ligamen: I was married before and did not get a Catholic church annulment.
Pauline Privilege: BOTH I nor my former spouse are Baptized, and now I (we) want to be Baptized.
Formal Case: All other cases
How do I know if I must present a marriage case to the tribunal?
Anyone who has been married in any ceremony (or who was in a common law marriage which was possible in Ohio until 10 October 1991) and who wants to be free to consider future marriage in the Catholic Church or with a Catholic must present a case.
How do I know what to say?
As for what words to use, pray to the Holy Spirit for guidance and trust that the words will come. The question of when to begin a marriage case is a tough one. Again, pray. When your discernment feels like it is not advancing, perhaps that is when to bring it to a spiritual director.
