Divorce

The Armenian Apostolic Church refuses to perform all marriages where one or both of the parties were married in accordance to the canons of our Church, and have subsequently obtained only a civil divorce, without advising the proper authorities of the Church about their divorce. 


It is possible to obtain an ecclesiastical divorce after the civil decree has been issued. However, the parish priest should exert every effort to reconcile the couple. Should the priest fail to do so, then the petition for a divorce and all relevant and corresponding documents are submitted to the Prelacy for an appropriate resolution.
