If you are born overseas and would like to get married in Australia you need to bring your birth certificate and your passport translated to English.
If you are from Spanish or Italian background, no need to translate as I can speak both languages.
If you have been married before you will need a decree absolute (final divorce papers) or a death certificate in English.
All these papers must be brought with you when you come to the country for me to sight. Please note that you cannot be married in Australia unless you have these original papers with you.
You can obtain a Notice of Intention to Marry form from the Australian High Commission, the Australian Embassy or the Australia Foreign Affairs Department in your country or I can send it to you in a pdf form to download. The back of the form will tell you who can witness the form for you. This form can be lodged by fax or e-mail to me prior to your wedding.
This form must be lodged with me no later than 30 days prior to the wedding. I will arrange all the legal paperwork necessary for you to be married here. You will need to get the form witnessed at the Australian Embassy or consulate in your country or by a Notary Public.
You will be given a presentation marriage certificate on your wedding date. You will need to obtain a stamped registered copy of your full legal marriage certificate from the registry office before leaving Australia. I can give you the necessary application form to do this if you need them.
For your marriage to be legal anywhere in the world it needs an Apostille, this can be obtained from the Department of Foreign Affairs in Brisbane
If you can't get to an office, check with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade office about how to send the document and how it will be returned to you, as well as what fees are applicable.
