PROCESS OVERVIEW

People often want to know how long the process for a declaration of nullity will take. Unfortunately, there is no simple answer. There are different types of processes, each of which requires a different amount of effort and time to complete. For help in determining which type of process is required, see the guide to type of case needed.

Below is a chart which details the steps of the Ordinary Process. This process takes between 12 to 18 months to complete. Other processes which rely on documents, such as the Lack of Form Process and the Ligamen Process can be completed in 6 to 8 weeks.

Regardless, of which type of process is needed, the Tribunal is unable to guarantee when the process will be completed.
