What if I want to get married sooner than the 1 calendar month requirement?

There are situations that require a quick wedding ceremony which doesn’t leave room for the 1 calendar month Notice of Intent to Marry lodgement.

In the instance of special requirements, a Prescribed Authority may approve your Application to Shorten Period of Notice of Intent to Marry.

To give you an idea, special circumstances could be:

  1. Employment related or travel commitments.

  2. Wedding or celebration arrangements, or religious considerations.

  3. Medical reasons.

  4. Legal proceedings.

  5. Error in giving notice.

Please note, to apply for a shortened time period, you must supply all supporting evidence with your request.  Your completed NOIM, copies of your supporting identity documents and a letter from your Celebrant should also be included.
