Notice of Intended Marriage (Form 13)
To be married in Australia you must give a minimum of one month's notice on this form. You must sign it in the presence of your Celebrant or another authorised person. In Australia this includes: a Commissioner for Declarations under the Statutory Declarations Act 1959; a Justice of the Peace; a Barrister or Solicitor; a legally qualified medical practitioner (a Doctor); or a Police Officer. If you are lodging your Notice from overseas, you will need to attend the Australian Embassy or Consulate in your country or have a Notary Public witness your signatures.

The month's notice only starts from the day your celebrant receives the Notice, but it can, initially , be lodged by email.

Please note that a Notice cannot be backdated as to do so a serious criminal offense that attracts a hefty fine and/or a prison sentence.

Where you have a genuine reason for needing to marry in less than a month, for example, one of you or a close family member is terminally ill, please contact me for advice about how to seek permission from a prescribed authority.
