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:
Employment related or travel commitments.
Wedding or celebration arrangements, or religious considerations.
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.
