Question
Briefly, what is the process to get our marriage registered in India under the Special Marriages Act? I am an Indian citizen (Hindu) getting married to an American citizen (Agnostic) in India on the 9th of June, and we both normally live in Australia. As I understand it, one of the requirements under the Special Marriages Act is that at least one of the people getting married is resident in the district the marriage is registered in. Noting that I will be travelling to India for a few days over Easter break (16/17 April), both of us will only return to India to get married on 28 May. We have tickets to return to Australia on 22 June. Additionally, I will be living in Gurgaon while the wedding ceremonies will take place in Agra. Is there any way we can register the marriage in India despite the fact that neither of us will be resident for 30 days? What is the evidence we need for the residency, and is there any way to get the process started early so we meet the requirement?

You will be needing residential proof to prove that you are a citizen of India. Proof can be an Aadhaar Card, Election ID Card, etc. You will be needing marriage photographs, wedding cards as well however if you don't retain these documents then any proof of marriage. Book a consultation for more detailed discussion.

Kindly book a consultation for detailed discussion.

In case a marriage between an Indian and a foreign national is to take place in India, the marriage has to solemnize under the Special Marriage Act. It is required to file a notice of intended marriage with Marriage Registrar of your choice in India. That notice is required to be published for the stipulated 30 days. At the end of the 30 days the Marriage Registrar is free to perform the marriage.The notice of intended marriage can only be given in India if at least one partner is permanently and the other partner temporarily resident in India.If one partner is residing in a foreign country then the partner who is resident in India will have to fill out the “Marriage Notice”collected from the Marriage Registration Office of his/her choice in India and send it to his/her partner in the foreign country who will also have to fill it out.
