The Famous 'NOIM ' 'Notice of Intention to Marry'

This is the form that must be completed and lodged with me at least one month
and no more than eighteen months before the intended date of your marriage.
To speed things along, you can you download this PDF version. Fill in the personal information for by typing into the PDF on your computer, save it and email it to me,
or bring a printout with you when I meet you. Filling it in by hand is fine too.

Quick Summary of most important info required to sign the 'NOIM':

The 'NOIM' can be signed without all the information being given,
but the missing info should be provided as soon as possible afterwards.

Bride and Groom: Your full name, occupation, address. Birthplace.

Evidence of birth: An original or official copy of a Birth Certificate,
not a certified copy. (An Australian or foreign passport is acceptable substitute)

Photo ID - eg Drivers licence.
                 If using passport as evidence of birth, additional photo ID is not required.

If previously married and divorced, a decree absolute of the divorce (NOT just Nisi)
If divorced in Australia, this is obtained from the Family Court of Australia

If previously married and your ex-partner is deceased,
I will need to see an original death certificate.

If applicable, the number of previous marriages,
and number of children and year of birth for each marriage.
(Children born outside any of the marriages, are not required to be listed)

Other Info required: (See info on this in the NOIM 'Notes' 1# on page 2)

Full names of parents. including mother's maiden-name and country of birth of both.

The Statutory Declaration
This must be signed and appropriately witnessed before the wedding can take place,
usually in the two weeks before the ceremony.
(This Stat Dec is not the usual Stat Dec form. It is printed on the back of the marriage certificate that we all sign on the day of the ceremony. Not much info required, just full name. It is all about you declaring that you are of marriageable age and that you are not already married (or know of any other impediment etc.)  See sample
I must do the witnessing for the Stat Declaration, (i.e. not the Chemist, as is usual with Stat Decs.)
