The Tribunal is available to help people who have experienced divorce and who may wish to remarry
in the Catholic Church. When a divorce occurs, the Catholic Church always seeks to balance two realities. One is the durable bond of marriage. This is God’s law.
On the other hand, the Church is concerned about the spiritual welfare of the people involved. Even though a Catholic marriage was celebrated, perhaps there was some deficiency in the consent of the parties involved regarding intentions, understanding or ability. The annulment procedure
addresses these circumstances.
If you are divorced and want to marry in the Church or remarried outside the Catholic Church, please find us on the web at archphila.org under the “How Do I” tab or call The Tribunal at 215-587- 3750.
