Annulments, when can you start?


I have a question about annulments, can an annulment be started as a divorce is in progress or must the divorce be finalized before the annulment process can partitioned?


The Church will never consider an annulment UNTIL the divorce decree is finalized.


From what I understand, the civil divorce must be final before one can start the annulment process.


I would suggest though that one could see about gettingin touch with an annulment councilor to get info and forms…



When the divorce is finalized but you can get the forms and things together so that you can have everything ready to go.
