Book Description :

Here is the only book that explains fully in lay terms the grounds and procedures by which Roman Catholics who have undergone civil divorces can also have their former marriages annulled by the Church. In the last decade alone, annulements in the United States have increased from 350 to over 30,000. At present, there are an estimated eight million divorced American Catholics, banned from full participation in the Church if the remarry without obtaining an annulment. Many of these people could obtain annulments -- yet, until the publication of Annulment, the lack of proper information and guidance has discouraged the majority of them. This book makes available the rights of divorce Catholics under the Revised Code of Canon Law, which is now in effect. In everyday language, this authoritative handbook takes readers step by step through the process, defines the laws as they now exist, sorts through misconceptions and fears surrounding annulment procedures, dicusses the meaning and rationale behind the rules, lays out all the grounds (including the new psychological grounds), examines all factors (including costs), defines the various apporaches, and provides samples of the forms involved. The author, a lawyer himself, consulted with canon lawyers, priests, and laypeople, -- some of whom have already used his manual with success.Annulment offers hope and solid help to the increasing number of people directly and indirectly affected by the divorce-remarriage-annulment problem. Zwack cuts cleanly through the Gordian knot of uncertainty to point the way for realistic, clear, effective solutions to this longstanding, anguished problem.

Book Description :

Jesus said of marriage: "What God has united, no one can divide". The Catholic Church interprets this to mean that remarriage is possible only after the death of the first spouse. So, it presumes that every wedding produces a marriage in which the spouses were united by God. However, the Church also recognises the possibility that a marriage that ended prematurely was not actually a true marriage; that there may have been a flaw of such magnitude that a valid marriage was not formed. When this can be proved, which is more often than most people would imagine, an 'annulment' can be granted and so the way opened to second marriage. How does the concept of marriage nullity reconcile with the teaching of Jesus? What are the grounds for nullity, what do they mean and in what circumstances might they be proved? How does a person obtain an 'annulment'? What does it mean for the status of children of the marriage? How much does it cost? Are there other ways of being able to remarry in the Church without obtaining an 'annulment'? What if an 'annulment' is not possible, for whatever reason? Does remarriage in such circumstances mean alienation from the sacraments, from the Church, even from God? The author is a canon lawyer who has worked in the field of marriage nullity within the Church for over thirty years. He has examined the details of thousands of marriages that ended in divorce. He uses that experience to guide the reader through the concept of marriage nullity, the grounds and the procedures for obtaining an 'annulment', including changes made by Pope Francis in 2015, and the other formal solutions that the Church offers to those who might want a second marriage. He also offers reflections about the 'internal forum solution' for those in a second marriage who cannot obtain an 'annulment'.

Book Description :

You CAN understand annulment. You just need a little help! You never wanted this to happen, but now you\'re civilly divorced. There's no such thing as Catholic divorce because in God\'s eyes a valid marriage can never be broken. But sometimes what looks like a marriage from the outside can be fatally flawed from the beginning. Only God can see deeply into the human heart. He knows how human frailty and weakness, and inabilities of some people to enter into marriage freely and fully despite their best attempts. After careful study of such an attempted union, the Church may be able to declare that no valid marriage bond was created. And this book will help you understand the process. Regardless of your situation, the Church is here to help and you don t have to be a priest or canon lawyer to understand the basics. This little book with big help dispels the common myths and misunderstandings about marriage, divorce, and annulments, and is helpful for: - Divorced men and women who are considering if they have grounds for an annulment - Those who need help completing their formal petition for a Decree of Nullity (annulment) - Lay or religious ministers who work with the separated and divorced - Parish priests and deacons involved in divorce ministry - Those who counsel divorced Catholics - Anyone who wants to know more about what the Church really teaches about divorce "I was afraid of the annulment process at first, but found it incredibly healing and even freeing. I learned so much about myself and was able to forgive my ex-spouse and ask for forgiveness as well." - Patty "I had no idea of what the Church really taught about marriage and divorce. I thought I did, but I was blown away when I learned the truth. Going through the annulment process actually made me hunger to know more of my Catholic faith." - Jim

Interwoven through these labyrinthian anxieties and hopes lies profound questions about faith, the Eucharist, the interal forum, excommunication and Biblical affirmation. The book deals with these pivotal areas of real concern within an historical context and with the goal of safeguarding the sacrament of Marriage, while equally acknowledging that we live in a worl affected by sin.

Book Description :

This book compares the Roman Catholic practice of annulments with the Eastern Orthodox practice of oikonomia. It explains how oikonomia is incompatible with Roman Catholic theology, and also how annulments are incompatible with Eastern Orthodox theology, including the parts of the Eastern Orthodox Churches that are in full visible union with Rome. However, when both the Catholic and Orthodox perspectives are viewed as complementary rather than contradictory, a fuller understanding of the Church's teaching is had. In explaining how the Catholic and Orthodox perspectives are complementary, a solution arises for the confusion and controversy regarding marriage and annulments in the Catholic Church. A theological explanation for, and clarification to, how oikonomia effectively operates for the Eastern Churches is also suggested. The main topic of this book is marriage and remarriage after divorce; however, the secondary topic is ecumenism and full visible union of the Church. A complementary explanation for differences in doctrine is given for what are commonly assumed are contradictory doctrines. Additionally, an explanation for the Dogma of Papal Infallibility and how the Orthodox can see this as something orthodox is suggested. While parts of the book are theologically dense and many aspects are alluded to without elaboration, most of this book is written for the average person with down to earth examples and a bit of humour. The small size of this book is intended to make it more accessible to a wider audience with the hope that it will stimulate further contemplation, study, and discussion.

Book Description :

For some Roman Catholics, divorce has major consequences over and above those for non-Catholics. It is of crucial importance to these divorcees that, after the Family Law Act proceedings finish, the (Catholic) Marriage Tribunal is approached for a Canon Law finding that the marriage was null and void - such a finding can be made even though there are children of the marriage (who may remain legitimate despite a "null and void" finding). Any lawyer advising a Catholic on divorce should also advise their client to consider seeking counsel with the Marriage Tribunal. Eileen Stuart's book explains why; and also explains the concepts and steps which must be taken. The Honourable Austin Asche AC QC said:'For Catholics and non-Catholics alike, Eileen Stuart has provided an invaluable guide to the present debate in the Catholic Church. ... all will benefit from this scholarly work where the issues are clearly set out, fairly considered and carefully discussed.'
