Q. I recently got married and want to go abroad. I wish to know the procedure to obtain a marriage certificate. Kindly enlighten me on this subject.
A. Marriage may be registered under a) Local Marriage Registration Act, or b) under section 15 of the Special Marriage Act, 1954.

Under the Special Marriage Act, 1954, both the parties are required to attach the following documents (the original as well as one photocopy) with the application in the prescribed form. The documents are: i) Age proof (school leaving certificate or birth certificate or domicile certificate or SSC Board certificate), ii) Residential proof (ration card or passport or election card or electricity bill and telephone bill of own name), iii) Photographs.

Under the Maharashtra Regulation Marriage Bureaus and Registration of Marriages, 1998, the documents are to be attached (the original as well as one photocopy) with the memorandum of the marriage form. The required documents are: i) Age proof (school leaving certificate or birth certificate or domicile certificate or SSC Board certificate), ii) Residential proof (ration card or passport or election card or electricity bill and telephone bill of own name), iii) Photographs, iv) 3 witness proofs (ration card or passport or election card or driving licence or govt identity card), iv) wedding card (in case of non-availability of wedding card, R100 stamp paper affidavit of both husband wife and three witnesses required), v) R100 court fee stamp.

Both the parties i.e. the bride and the bridegroom are expected to remain present before the marriage officer. In certain cases, the officer goes to the party’s place. The marriage officer issues the marriage certificate, which you may submit to the passport authorities, who in turn will make the necessary changes in their records.

Document needed to be produced in case of divorcees is Divorce Decree Certificate. Document needed to be produced in case of widow or widower is the death certificate of the concerned person.
