Tribunal Services

Attention Judicial Vicars!

Does Your Tribunal

  • Scramble to process the occasional Spanish case each year?
  • Operate with a sole clerical Judge who is stretched thin with duties?
  • Lack sufficient resources to conduct in-person interrogatories of the parties and/or witnesses?
  • Rely heavily upon written questionnaires?
  • Need an Assessor to ghostwrite sentences?
  • Require an outside Defender of the Bond or Advocate either occasionally or regularly?

If yours is like most Tribunals around the US, there are times when outsourcing makes the most sense because of the lack of personnel or resources. Unfortunately, moonlighting or privately practicing canonists are hard to find and they are swamped with work. Finding reliable people who have the necessary qualifications and integrity and an understanding of tribunal ministry can be like searching through the proverbial haystack for the needle.

Enter Annulment Pros, LLC–a solution for your outsourcing difficulties. Our experienced canonists offer your Tribunal canonical services such as writing Assessor, Defender of the Bond, and Advocate briefs. Our native or fluent bi-lingual canonists can produce briefs, sentences, and interviews in Spanish. Other expert services (available in both English and Spanish) include auditing, transcribing interviews. We also can provide translations from Spanish, Italian, or Latin to English.
