Marriage Registration

If you want to marry in Australia, you have to be:

  • At least 18 years old.
  • Not already married.
  • Refusing to wed a brother, sister, parent, grandmother, kid, or grandchild.
  • Free to marry, means that you are not legally barred from doing so and that you are not already married to someone else.

A Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM) form must be filled out and given to the registered marriage celebrant at least one month (but not more than eighteen months) prior to the wedding if the celebrant is a registered marriage celebrant. After that, the celebrant will register your union and give you a marriage license.

You must speak with the religious minister or other authorized person immediately to learn about their particular requirements if you are being married under their auspices.

How to register a marriage in Australia?

As soon as you tie the knot, you must register your union with the state or territory's Registry of Births, Deaths, and Marriages. This can be completed by mail or online.

State-by-state variations exist in the cost of marriage registration in Australia. Still, it's usually a quite cheap procedure.
