13.  When does the decision become final?

When and if both the Diocese of Austin and the Appellate Court in San Antonio give affirmative decisions (meaning that the marriage in question was invalid), both you and your former spouse will be free to enter into a new marriage in the Catholic Church (unless other marriage cases are pending). At this point the decision of the case is final.
