Married Overseas

Marriage certificates issued by foreign government departments are not accepted as evidence of your new name by most Australian organisations. If you were married overseas you'll need a Change of Name certificate.

If you lodge your name change application in the same state as your birth, you are issued an amended birth certificate showing your name at birth and your new name. If you live in a different state from your birth you'll receive a legal name change certificate. Lodge in either your birth state or state of residence (exc. Qld and NSW residents - you must lodge in your birth state). For more information, including costs and turnaround times, read our section on legal name change.
