Everything You Need To Know About Name Change After Marriage

Ordering Your Marriage Certificate With Births, Deaths & Marriages

Births, Deaths & Marriages in each state are responsible for issuing birth, marriage, name change and death certificates.

 

A marriage certificate is a legal document to verify your marriage registration and is used to establish a person’s identity.

 

You must apply for a certificate in the state in which your marriage was registered. IT DOES NOT NECESSARILY AUTOMATICALLY COME TO YOU. Check with your celebrant if it arranged.

 

Next Step is not affiliated with Births, Deaths & Marriages, and therefore we can not answer questions relating to the issuing of certificates. These questions are best directed to the registry in the state in which the event took place. Contact details can be found below.

Certifying Documents

Each state and territory have different legislation governing who can certify documents. To avoid confusion and potential delays, we recommend all copies of documents are certified by a Justice of the Peace.

 

Below is a list of persons approved to certify documents in each state. Click on the link in your home state to find a Justice of the Peace local to you.

Getting Your Marriage Certificate Copies Certified By A JP

Justice of the Peace (JPs) are voluntarily appointed officers who carry out a range of legally-related tasks to help the community. The most common task that JPs perform is certifying  copies  as being true and correct versions of the original document.

 

We have Queensland registered Justice of the Peace on staff. While they can certify copies of documents for residents of any Australian state or territory, it is at the discretion of each individual organisation as to whether or not they will accept copies certified by a Justice of the Peace outside of your state of residence. The original documents must be sighted with the copies in order for the copies to be certified. If you would like our staff to certify copies of your marriage, divorce or birth certificates or other relevant identification documents, please email us at admin@nextstep.com.au to arrange. You will need to send your original document along with the copies you would like certified and a postage paid reply envelope so we can return your documents to you. This is a free service. If your name or address change requires you to complete a Statutory Declaration or requires signatures to be witnessed, this will need to be conducted in person.
