Nervous posting this..(religion)

Here is my situation. I am catholic and have never been married before.
My FI however is Buddhist, and has been divorced for 5 years. He was previously married in a Catholic church.
My Mom insists that if we were to marry in a Catholic church, that my FI needs to have his previous marriage ANNULHED by the Catholic Church. AND that we would need to meet with the priest who marries us to discuss the situation. I have contacted a few people from my parents church, and I have not heard back yet.
So I wonder how the heck am I going to pull that off I figure we will not find out who our priest is for our ceremony until we arrive at our resort. AND I'm sure he/she will be busy with other ceremonies!! I am just frustrated that this situation has become complicated! I contacted my WC weeks ago to see if we could get the contact information for who is going to do our ceremony, and my question was ignorored.
Has anyone here been in this type of situation?
Thank you for listening!

It Sucks really.
Your FI would have to file for the annulment with the district the church is in where he was married before. And then once all the letters and paperwork is recieved and filed it will go before a panel of priests/ judges to start reviewing and asking questions. They will inform his Ex and ask if she wants to add any input. They also ask for 2 witness reports. And he has to prove that the marriage was not right to begin with. There are a ton of stipulations.
Needless to say you can't contact the DW WC for this info/ any random priest that you want to marry you. It has to go to the head priest of the district he was married in.
Hope this helps- sorry to be a downer!
