The Legals Only

We get together for a chat to talk about your wedding and I’ll explain all the legalities and answer any questions you have. At this meeting we will complete the  Notice of Intended Marriage together or I can email it to you to complete.

 

I will need to sight your original birth certificates, photo ID (passport or drivers Licence) and proof of residence (Electricity Bill or Rates Notice). If either of you have been married before I will ask to see divorce papers or a death certificate.

 

The NOIM needs to be lodged with me at least 31 days before your wedding date and up to 18 months before.

 

+ I will conduct the wedding at my office or at a mutually agreed convenient location.

 

+ If you would like to add a basic ceremony, we can discuss the structure and length and I can provide you with a short meaningful ceremony. (Fee may vary dependent on your requirements)

 

+ I will lodge all the legal documents to register your marriage and provide you guidance on how to obtain your official marriage certificate. This usually takes 2 – 4 weeks for you to receive.

 

Alternatively, for minimal fuss, I can order the official certificate on your behalf for the purchase fee.

 

All of the above is inclusive of my fee $600

Note if travel and accommodation are required there is an additional fee

 

Note: The Cairns Court house does not offer registry weddings. Brisbane is the closest big city where you can have a registry wedding. Dependent on the day and time the cost for a registry wedding is from $350 to $650.
