How long does it take for my marriage to be registered by Births Deaths and Marriages so I can get the official marriage certificate?
In Victoria your celebrant can track the progress of your certificate online. Depending on what time of year you got married the certificate can take up to 8 weeks ( eg March and October).
You need to download an application form and can apply online or pick it up in person once you know your certificate is ready. The cost is $31.00.
You will need the official certificate for identification purposes if you wish to change your name.
