Declaration of Nullity before Confirmation?

I’ve been attending RCIA for some time now, and in the few months prior to Easter Vigil last year, when the rest of my group was confirmed, I was informed that I would need to obtain a Declaration of Nullity for previous marriages before I could be confirmed. Is it possible for me to obtain a dispensation, considering I have no desire or intention to remarry?

Unless you are currently legally married to someone then you do not need a declaration of nullity for prior marriages. There is no canon or provision that would deny a divorced person full communion with the Church. The only issue that arises is if someone is divorced and remarried.
