Things to Know

Legal Requirements Australian Law does not permit a marriage if both parties are under the age of 18 years. If only one is under the age of 18, permission may be given with (i) written parental consent on an official form AND (ii) a court order under Sec. 12 of the Marriage Act.

In accordance with the Australian Marriage Act, “The Notice of Intended Marriage” form must be completed and lodged at least ONE CALENDAR MONTH AND ONE DAY prior to the marriage taking place, BUT NO EARLIER THAN 18 MONTHS BEFORE THE WEDDING.
