The Essence of Signing the Notice of Intended Marriage when Getting Married14 June 2022
You may be too ready and excited to dive into your wedding preparations but there are still legal documents to process aside from busying yourself with the venue selection for the reception and preparing for the other small but essential wedding stuff that is equally important. Legal documents are very important to make your marriage legal and binding in the eyes of the law. And the first legal paperwork that you need to process is the Notice of Intended Marriage. Both of the parties should fill it in with personal details and identifications then lodge it to your marriage celebrant, if you have chosen one, for registration. But it should not be left unsigned before it is submitted for registration and before the solemnization of the marriage. In this blog, we have tackled the essence of signing the Notice of Intended Marriage when getting married.
To Legally Commence the Marriage Process
Putting your signatures in the Notice of Intended Marriage legally commences the marriage process and will serve as a go signal for your chosen marriage celebrant to register your wedding and make it legal and binding. A wedding ceremony shall not be solemnized unless a Notice of Intended Marriage had been signed by both parties to the marriage as well as the marriage celebrant. Signing the Notice of Intended Marriage should not be overlooked, otherwise, the document would only be regarded as a mere scrap of paper.
Declares There Is No Legal Impediment on Both Parties
One essence of signing the Notice of Intended Marriage when getting married is it will serve as a declaration by both parties that there is no legal impediment existing that will potentially make the marriage void because of a legal issue. Thus, it is very important to communicate to your marriage celebrant any legal issues or impediments, like prior marriage and status, for your marriage celebrant to find an immediate solution before submitting your application for registration and make the process go smoothly.
To Attest to the Truth of the Personal Details Indicated
Signing the Notice of Intended Marriage when getting married will serve as your attestation to the truth of the personal details and proof of identification surrounding the legal document. Your signature will serve as a confirmation of your identity and other important information that should be written in the Notice of Intended Marriage. If all are in place, then the registration can then proceed, along with the other legal documents or proof that the marriage celebrant may require to substantiate some important information.
To Obtain a Certificate of Marriage
As the initial legal step to the registration of your marriage, the Notice of Intended Marriage must be fully complied with and adding your signature seals the paperwork. When all are set, signing the Notice of Intended Marriage indicates your go signal for your chosen marriage celebrant to commence with the process of the registration and finally obtain a certificate of marriage after the documents are all signed and fully submitted to the approving authority.
