The major work of the Southwark Metropolitan Tribunal is dealing with and processing applications for nullity of marriage relating to people in the Archdiocese of Southwark.
Married couples aspire to remain wedded for life, but for many reasons, relationships are not always successful and do occasionally end in separation. Where this is the case and the marriage has ended, it is possible for the Southwark Marriage Tribunal to explore whether it may be null and void, or invalid, which would allow a further marriage to be feasible in the eyes of the Church.
The Tribunal Team, led by our Judicial Vicar, are trained and able to assist you in discovering whether you may have a case for annulment, which is subject to Church Law. Each instance will be treated with the utmost discretion and applicants treated with appropriate pastoral consideration.
Judicial Vicar: Rev Father Gregory Verissimo
