Family Law Branch
Attorney General's Department
Robert Garran Offices
National Circuit

or alternatively view their website Commonwealth Attorney General's Department (Marriages).

If you wish to become a religious marriage celebrant you should contact the nominating authority of your church for further information in relation to becoming an authorised marriage celebrant.
