So if abuse (physical or mental) occurrs during the marriage it could indicate that one of the parities was not emotionally or psychologically capable at the time of the wedding to enter the life-long marriage commitment. If that was the case, then an annulment could be granted.
The Catholic Church also recognizes that there are valid reasons for a civil divorce - abuse being one of them. So a Catholic is not automatically excommunicated or anything if they divorce. In fact a civil divorce is necessary in order to obatain an annulment.

17. How much does the annulment procedure cost?
An ordinary annulment is $500.00 with $100.00 being due at the time the case is submitted. The remainder can be paid in monthly payments. The Diocese of St. Cloud heavily subsidizes the Tribunal. There are many expenses involved in the process and to help defray these expenses you are asked to pay part of the actual costs involved. We will not impose any financial hardship on anyone. If you cannot pay the full amount, please let us know. No case will be turned down due to a person's inability to pay the fee! Your case will be heard just like any other, and in the same amount of time. Money will never influence the work of justice.
