The holiness and indissolubility of Christian matrimony, often disintegrating under tremendous pressure from the secular world, must be deepened by clear doctrine and supported by the witness of committed married couples… Christian matrimony is a lifelong covenant of love between one man and one woman; it entails real sacrifices in order to turn away from illusory notions of sexual freedom and in order to foster conjugal fidelity.

—Pope Francis, April 25, 2014


The Tribunal of the Diocese of Phoenix is the court of the Bishop to adjudicate ecclesiastical judicial cases, particularly marriage annulment cases. This website is a resource for the services of the Tribunal, including information about the annulment process, FAQs, and other valuable tools.
