My mother is very distraught to the point of almost leaving the Church.
My father and mother divorced about 11 years ago. Both have remarried.
My father has left the Church completely, becoming fundamentalist Baptist. My mother has been seeking out an annulment, but my father says he no longer recognizes the authority of the Catholic Church and will not sign the papers.
Her pastor has told her there is nothing that can be done. Are there any canon lawyers out there who could challenge that? I’m really in need of an answer on this. At least to give her hope.
