Your diocesan tribunal will be able to give you a more exact estimate based upon your case.
How can a couple married for many years present a case?
It does not prove or disprove the existence of a valid marriage bond.
If a marriage is declared null, does it mean that the marriage never existed? It means that a marriage that was thought to be valid civilly and canonically was in fact not valid according to Church law.
Dear Catholic Answers, I hope this is the right forum to ask this question.
