It costs around 400-600 per annullment (for the canon lawyers’ time etc.), but the diocese generally subsidizes that cost, but different dioceses subsidize different amounts. So it really depends on your doicese. Email your priest. He’s the only one that can give you specifics.

My friend had to have the the longer version, and the parish she was in originally had given her a pretty high dollar amount (not sure what it was, sorry) and she kept putting it off because they wanted it all in one lump sum to begin the process, and she didn’t have it.  THEN she met her now husband. And they wanted to get married. And, in visiting churches in the area, they joined a different parish together. THIS parish would front the money so you could go ahead and get the process started, and let you pay what you could along the way– if you could pay it all back that’s great!  If not, that’s fine- they would rather that people who genuinely wanted to be a part of the Church have that opportunity. And so they got started. She chose to have a ceremony outside of the Church with a convalidation after because of her age, wanting to start a family, etc. and her annulment came through last fall, around the time of their first anniversary.  For the long version (the only one I’m familiar with) it’s a long wait. BUT back to the original topic- if the amount is high, see if you can pay over time- especially if you are a member of that parish and will continue attending after your wedding, etc. Best of luck!

I would recommend talking to a priest or even the diocese. If this is really truly a financial hardship, they should be able to lower it.
