Divorce and Annulment

"We [bishops] understand the pain of those for whom divorce seemed the only recourse...We urge them to make frequent use of the sacraments, especially the Sacraments of Holy Eucharist and Reconciliation…We encourage divorced persons who wish to marry in the Catholic Church to seek counsel about the options that exist to remedy their situation, including the suitability of a declaration of nullity when there is no longer any hope of reconciliation of the spouses."
- USCCB, Marriage: Love and Life in the Divine Plan, 2009

 

A declaration of nullity is necessary if you have been married previously, divorced and now desire to marry in the Church, enter a religious community, or seminary. To determine which type of process is required given your unique circumstances.  For more information visit  marriage nullity process | Diocese of Pueblo  or contact the Office of the Tribunal 719-544-9861 x1161.
