An annulment is a formal declaration by the Church that a Sacramental marriage did not meet the requirements for validity. It is not a divorce, a moral judgment, or denial of a common life together nor does it affect the status of children from the marriage. The Office of the Tribunal handles the annulment process and there is no fee for a formal case.
