Hi, guys —

I am a divorced Catholic who was married in the Catholic Church. I am trying to get an annulment.

I am engaged to be married and my fiancé is also divorced. He was baptized Catholic but not raised in any particular religion. He was married in an Episcopal church and that marriage ended in a divorce.

  • If I am granted an annulment will we be free to marry in the Catholic Church?


  { In this situation, if I am granted an annulment, will we be free to marry in the Catholic Church? }

Fr. Jonathan replied:

Hi Nicole,

You need to receive the annulment and your fiancé needs a process done. The priest will need proof that he was baptized Catholic. If he was, then the priest would need to verify that, indeed, he was not raised in a particular religion.

If all of that is true then what he needs is a Lack of Form case. This does not take long.

Fr. Jonathan
