EXPLANATORY STATEMENT

MARRIAGE ACT 1961

MARRIAGE REGULATIONS

1986 No. 229

Paragraph (a) of Section 120 of the Marriage Act 1961 (the Act) provides that the Governor-General may make regulations prescribing the forms to be used under the Act.

Form 14A of the First Schedule to the Marriage Regulations prescribes the form of the document outlining the obligations and consequences of marriage and indicating the availability of pre-martial education and counselling, which is required to be given to the parties under sub-section 42(5A) of the Act.

As a consequence of the commencement of the Veterans’ Entitlements 1986 (Act No 27 Assented to 19 May 1986) the reference in Form 14A to “repatriation benefits” is to be replaced by the words “veterans’ entitlements”.

Details of the proposed regulations are as follows:

The First Schedule to the Marriage Regulations is amended by omitting from the paragraph immediately under the heading “Health insurance and welfare benefits” in Form 14A “repatriation” and substituting “veterans’ entitlements”.

Authorized by the Attorney-General
