PART III : CERTAIN SPECIAL PROCESSES

TITLE I: MATRIMONIAL PROCESSES (Cann. 1671 - 1707)

CHAPTER I : CASES CONCERNING THE DECLARATION OF NULLITY OF MARRIAGE

ARTICLE 1: THE COMPETENT FORUM

Can. 1671 Matrimonial cases of the baptised belong by their own right to the ecclesiastical judge.

Can. 1672 Cases concerning the merely civil effects of marriage pertain to the civil courts, unless particular law lays down that, if such cases are raised as incidental and accessory matters, they may be heard and decided by an ecclesiastical judge.

Can. 1673 The following tribunals are competent in cases concerning the nullity of marriage which are not reserved to the Apostolic See:

the tribunal of the place where the marriage was celebrated;

the tribunal of the place where the respondent has a domicile or quasi-domicile;

the tribunal of the place where the plaintiff has a domicile, provided that both parties live within the territory of the same Episcopal Conference, and that the judicial Vicar of the domicile of the respondent, after consultation with the respondent, gives consent;

the tribunal of the place in which in fact most of the evidence is to be collected, provided that consent is given by the judicial Vicar of the domicile of the respondent, who must first ask the respondent whether he or she has any objection to raise.
