The tribunal will decide if it has the competency to hear the case, then either accept or reject the petition.If accepted, the tribunal will assign an auditor and a judge to the case.In order for marital consent to be considered valid, the following must be true: A declaration of nullity is granted only when it can be proven that some judicial defect rendered a particular marriage not valid, despite all outward appearances, despite good faith of the partners and despite the procreation of children subsequent to the wedding.A declaration of nullity is not a divorce; it is a statement that the bond of marriage, as understood by the Church, was never created.
