Church Divorces: Legal Or Not?

Although the Catholic Church does not permit divorce, it does have an internal legal process that allows believers to obtain a ruling that a marriage bond wasn't valid on the grounds of one or more defects. If such a finding is obtained, then a Catholic is able to remarry with the recognition of their church. A new Supreme Court ruling, however, forces Catholics to seek a secular divorce as well.
