Can you tell me about the annullment process?

Does anyone know when you can start the annullment process? Does your divorce have to be finalized. If the divorce has to be finalized, is it ok to start to date while the annullment process is happening?

These links should be helpful for guidance concerning annulments. If you have any further questions or concerns that are not answered by these links, please contact Catholic Answers directly.
