LEGAL REQUIREMENTS FOR MARRIAGE IN AUSTRALIA Marilyn Singer - Civil Marriage Celebrant

To marry in Australia requires the completion of a "Notice of Intention to Marry". This must be lodged with the Celebrant at least one month and one day prior to the marriage taking place.

In order to complete the “Notice of Intention to Marry”, identification must be shown. For Australian born, a full birth certificate is required. For overseas born, an overseas passport or, if you are a naturalised Australian, your birth certificate*. If either party has been married previously, either a decree absolute or death certificate must be shown whichever is appropriate.

*If for some reason you are unable to obtain a full birth certificate (this would only apply to overseas born couples, as Australian born people must have a full birth certificate) Marilyn can prepare a Statutory Declaration for you to sign, in order for your marriage to be solemnised.
