Canon 1127§2 - Dispensation from
Canonical Form, Mixed Marriages
If serious difficulties pose an obstacle to the observance of the canonical form, the local ordinary of the Catholic party has the right to dispense from the form in individual cases, but after consulting the ordinary of the place where the marriage is to be celebrated and with due regard, for validity, for some public form of celebration; the conference of bishops is to issue norms by which such a dispensation may be granted in an orderly manner.
Complementary Norm: The particular norms issued by the National Conference of Catholic Bishops on November 16, 1970 continue in effect except that the ordinary of the place where the marriage is to take place is no longer competent to grant the dispensation from the form of marriage.
Approved: Administrative Committee, September 1983
Promulgated: Memorandum to All Bishops, October 21, 1983
