What's involved in being a witness to a Catholic Annulment?
Asked May 21, 2010, 11:20 AM
I was asked to serve as a witness for an annulment in the Catholic church and have been trying to find out more about what is involved. I know that my testimony would be written only. I am deciding whether to do this.
1. How much of what I write is disclosed to the two parties in the marriage?
2. Is there a way I can get a copy of the questions I would have to answer before I commit to doing it?
I want to honor the request of the husband to provide testimony because I feel an annulment is very warranted based on my personal observations and extensive time with the couple. At the same time, his ex-wife and I have some other connections that impact other people, and I'd rather not create a big stink with her - what I have to say, though all true and fair, does not flatter her at all.
