Lack of Canonical Form
This petition is used in those cases where a Catholic entered into a marriage ceremony without fulfilling the requirement of canonical form (Canon 1108: marrying before a Catholic priest or deacon and two witnesses) and that marriage ended in divorce.
This petition form may be reproduced in one of the following three ways:
- Four pages (one side only).
- Two pages (front and back).
- One folded page (front and back) on 11-by-17 inch size paper, akin to the prenuptial questionnaire.
