Canon 767

1. The eparchial bishop or the hierarch of an institute of

consecrated life can dispense his subjects from the impediments

from receiving or exercising sacred orders except in the following cases: (1) if the deed, upon which the impediment is based,

had been taken to the judicial forum; (2) from the impediments

mentioned in can. 762, 1, nn. 2-4. 2. Dispensation from these

impediments is reserved to the patriarch for candidates or clerics who have a domicile or quasi-domicile within the territorial

boundaries of the Church over which he presides; otherwise, it is

reserved to the Apostolic See. 3. A confessor has the same

powers of dispensing in the more urgent occult cases, in which

the competent authority cannot be reached and there is a danger

of grave harm or infamy, but only to ensure that the penitents

can licitly exercise the sacred orders already received, with due

regard for the responsibility of approaching that authority as

soon as possible.
