Amovability

Additional Links

(Latin: a, from; movere, to move) The term applied to the condition of those who hold a removable office. The difference between a removable office and an irremovable one is this: if there be a question of an irremovable office, the Ordinary cannot deprive a cleric of it, unless by means of a process carried out according to law; if there be question of a removable office, the deprival can be decreed by the Ordinary for any just cause whatever, which is left to his prudent judgment, natural equity being observed, but he is not at all bound to follow a certain method of procedure, except in the case of removable parishes.
