Hi, guys —

I'm a life long Catholic and my ex-wife divorced me. I did sign the divorce papers.

  • Can I re-marry and, if I can, can I re-marry in a Catholic Church?

Thank you. I look forward to your response.


  { If my ex-wife divorced me and I signed the divorce papers, can I remarry in the Catholic Church? }

Mary Ann replied:

Dear Michael —

I am sorry that your wife divorced you. The Church can examine the prior bond and see if it was valid or not. If it was not valid for some reason:

  • defect of consent
  • deception
  • not intending permanence or children, among many other reasons . . .

then you will receive a declaration of nullity and you will be able to marry in the Church.

God bless.

Mary Ann
