Marriage Tribunal


In 1986 each constituent diocese opened its own Tribunal office to better facilitate those who wished to apply (petition) for a declaration of nullity. If a petition is accepted the necessary investigations are usually made through each diocesan office.

Part of the Church’s teaching on marriage is that a valid, sacramental and consummated union is, by its very nature, indissoluble. If consent to marriage is flawed then a question may arise as to the validity of the marriage itself. The Armagh Inter-Diocesan Marriage Tribunal is established to deal specifically with this kind of question or doubt about a marriage.

If you wish to make a petition for a declaration of nullity or obtain further information please contact your local priest or the Tribunal Office.
