The Marriage Tribunal of the Diocese of Fort Worth is the office which adjudicates the marital status in the Catholic Church of any divorced person who has requested a declaration of nullity (an “annulment”) of a previous marriage. The Tribunal exercises its ministry of truth and justice in a spirit of compassion and confidentiality according to the teaching and practice of the Catholic Church. All who share in this ministry commit themselves to mutual support and ongoing formation in the Church’s canon law and its practical application.
If you are a divorced Catholic, it may be possible to receive an annulment. It does not affect your children (if there are any from the union), and it does not cost anything more than some of your time. To find out more about the annulment process or to get the necessary forms to begin the process, contact the parish office at 817-460-2751 or visit the Diocese of Fort Worth website at www.fwdioc.org.
