Original Decree Nisi /Original Certificate of Divorce

As from 1 July 2002, the Family Court and Federal Magistrates Court ceased issuing separate documents for a decree nisi of dissolution of marriage and a decree absolute. They now issue a document headed "Certificate of Divorce" which contains the date of both the decree nisi and the decree absolute. This certificate is evidence of divorce for the purposes of solemnising a marriage (see section 42(10)). If you were divorced prior to that date you will need to provide a copy of the decree absolute. 
Note: Photocopies of documents will not be accepted.

Original Divorce Certificate

Notice of Intended Marriage Form (NOIM)

The NOIM should be printed, typed or handwritten in block letters with a black pen.

The NOIM must be lodged with Neal Foster, The Marriage Celebrant no earlier than 18 months before your marriage and no later than one month before your marriage.

If you feel you have a valid reason for not being able to give one month’s notice, then you may apply for a shortening of time to a prescribed authority such as the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriage or your local magistrates court.
