Things were going along rather smoothly until I came to part about having to include witnesses.....grrrrrrrr

I wish you luck. I am blessed on two counts. My most critical witness is my exhusband's sister-in-law to give his family's reactions and interactions, and she is helping me. The greater blessing is that she, my brother-in-law and my nephews and niece kept me after the divorce. I have no truer friend. heart

I also figure if I'm not available I don't have to worry about being rejected. Not being able to scrape up that extra $300 is a really convenient excuse.

The filing fee is another drawback, and has kept me from moving forward.

I separated in the first year and a final time in 2002 after less than 2 years. I started my annulment in 2004, then a bunch of technicalities were brought up by the opposing side and had to start it over in mid 2005. It moved very slow but that was her plan, to stonewall everything to get me desperate, she knew I was a one women man. She changed every thing she knew was wrong with her and attempted to get me back. Unfortunately, it worked. Less than 2 years together once again. Again separated in 2009, annulment started for a 3rd time in 2010. Now I can say beyond any doubt, I won't be going back. So its been 2 years in the Diocese again, I just wish there was a "due process" clause in the canon.


Its better to get started now than to have wished you would have started it years earlier.


As far as the cost to process the annulment, I think it is very fair considering all they have to do. Also, I was offered to make payments. Total cost, $400.

Reading others accounts of the annulment process makes me feel very blessed that the ADF in Oklahoma funds this process. So we are not required to pay a fee, I truly think folks just like me donate more to the ADF in the long run because we know how valuable our donations are & want to Pay it Forward to those still needing help. scratchchin
