There are a lot of questions about annulments out there. Please find below some helpful information.
Which type of Annulment is right for me?
Lack of Canonical Form: Myself or my former spouse is a baptized Catholic AND ALSO did not get married in front of a Catholic Priest or Deacon in a church.
Ligamen: My former spouse was married before and they did not get a Catholic church annulment
Pauline Privilege: BOTH myself and my former spouse were not Baptized at our wedding and now I want to be Baptized.
Formal Case: All other cases
Please contact the Parish Office to begin your annulment: (937) 372-3193
Anyone who has been married in any kind of ceremony (or who was in a common law marriage which was possible in Ohio until 10 October 1991) who wants to be free to consider future marriage in the Catholic Church or with a Catholic needs to present a case.
As for what words to use, pray to the Holy Spirit for guidance and then trust that the words will come. The question of when to begin a marriage case is a tough one. Again, pray. When your discernment feels like it is not advancing in any direction, perhaps that is when to bring it to a spiritual director.
