Pre-nuptial Investigation Form MA

The M-A Prenuptial Investigation Form is to be used with all couples as the basic instrument to determine the freedom of the parties to marry and to assess the quality of their intention to marry. Additionally, the form has a space for written delegation. Please complete this form for each proposed marriage and place in the pre-nuptial file. If the marriage is to take place in another diocese or the couple themselves are from another diocese (or the Catholic party, in the case of a mixed religion marriage), please send this form with the other requested documents to the Tribunal for processing.
