Review of marriage forms – Notice of intended marriage
Submissions close on Sunday, 28 October 2018
The Attorney-General's Department is progressing a review of the approved forms made under the Marriage Act 1961 and Marriage Regulations 2017.

The review is building on feedback from stakeholders, including comments received following the commencement of marriage equality in December 2017, as well as previous work undertaken by the department to streamline and modernise the forms.

Any changes to the Notice of intended marriage (NOIM) form will impact on other official marriage forms – specifically the Official Certificate of Marriage, and the Declaration of No Legal Impediment to Marriage. These forms will also be revised when the NOIM is finalised following the current consultation.

Feedback is invited on the draft revised NOIM and can be provided by email to marriagecelebrantssection@ag.gov.au.

The Australian Attorney General’s Department is proposing changes to the Notice of Intended Marriage Form.
The proposed form does NOT INCLUDE provision for parents names, occupation, NOR current address of the Bride and Groom. This is vital information for family research.
Feedback is being invited until 28th October 2018.
Please add your voice to the consideration of this important matter.
