Tribunal Office

The Tribunal Office is the judicial court that handle cases of Declaration of Nullity for the Diocese of Novaliches for both Clergy and Laity. That’s the nullification of Marriage and Holy Orders.

The Tribunal Office safeguards the sanctity of the Christian Marriage*, which it considers valid until proven otherwise. Thus, it works hand-in-hand with the Commission on Family and Life especially in the initial interview of persons petitioning for the nullification of their marriage in the Catholic Church.

Due to the latest intervention (Mitis Iudex Dominus Iesus) of His Holiness, Pope Francis, some modifications are on its way for the benefit of those marriage situations. Tribunals and Canon lawyers are still studying the practical aspects for its implementation.

You may get in touch with the Tribunal Office from Tuesdays to Saturdays during office hours through their contact details below.  Should you need forms for your marriage, you can download them here.
