14. Does the Tribunal ever deny an annulment?

Yes. Some cases are given a negative decision; that is, the judge decides that the marriage was a valid and binding union. If this should happen, you will be notified of that decision by the Tribunal. You would then have the option of appealing the decision to either the Appellate Court in San Antonio or the Roman Rota. The Roman Rota is the Supreme Court of the Church for marriage cases (among other things).
