For this reason, the communication experience in the religious environment is very important.

Legal Information & Marriage documents There is some paperwork for Marriage Celebrant to accurately complete before submitting to the Victoria Department of Births, Deaths & Marriages so as to process your civil marriage registration correctly. The very first form is called the notice of intended marriage, a four-page form. It is advisable to download this yourself from the link below, so that you may skim through for any requirements such as an original or a certified copy of your Birth Certificate, Passport, Driving License, divorce certificate, and death certificate of the previous partner.

Shortening of time

AUTHORISING MARRIAGE WHERE NOIM IS GIVEN WITH LESS THAN
THE REQUIRED NOTICE TIME – ‘SHORTENING OF TIME’

A list of prescribed authorities is published on the Attorney-General’s Department’s website.

There are the five circumstances in which an application for shortening of time may be considered by a
prescribed authority are set out in Schedule 3 to the Marriage Regulations.

These are limited to:
1. employment-related or other travel commitments
2. wedding or celebration arrangements, or religious considerations
3. medical reasons
4. legal proceedings, or
5. an error in giving notice.

What should you do if you want us to help you?

When a celebrant is asked to reduce the minimum notice period for the NOIM, the celebrant must
ensure that the NOIM is in order and then refer the party or parties with the notice to a prescribed
authority. The celebrant should explain the following key points to the couple:
the reason for seeking a shortening of time must fall within one of the prescribed categories
(described above, five categories) before the application can be considered
a prescribed authority has no discretion to grant a shortening of time outside the
circumstances covered by these categories
the granting of a shortening of time is not automatic
a prescribed authority may charge an application fee – celebrants should suggest that the
couple check if a fee is charged when making an appointment with a prescribed authority.

If you require  BDM form for  Shortening of Time, please send your request to calebthecelebrant@gmail.com.
