The procedure for invalidity

The procedure is perhaps simpler than a trial in civilian courts; it is not a dispute between the parties. Only study to marriage itself, not the behavior of spouses or who is guilty or the subsequent events. The church investigates the ability to pamper the bride and groom to accept marriage as such; i.e. that there are no impediments to celebrate and that consent has been voluntary, free of pressures, conditions, fraud, violence, or fear, and with full capacity.

Grounds for invalidity

The unique causes that can lead to the Declaration of nullity of a marriage are few, limited and specific to that designates the canonical code – the law of the Church-which applies only to Catholics. They are called settling impediments, some of natural law (e.g. kinship or total and incurable impotence); other common law, (as being already married or the Rapture). The law of the Church has three more: Holy orders, professing in a convent or the disparity of cults. The most frequent cause is the lack of ability for defects of consent of the spouses.
