Registration of Marriage

Page no : 2

Adv.Shine Thomas (Advocate)     08 October 2008

This marriage (ie,Court Marriage) will be covered under the Special Marriage Act.

Mrs. Hetal Sunil Shah (Advocate)     11 October 2008

Hon'ble all: In all such cases we go for the short cut for performance of marriage ceremoney under Hindu retuals and get it registered under Hindu Marriage Act, 1956, because for marriage ceremoney under Special Marriage Act you need to approach Marriage Registrar before one month. The concerned registrar will issue Notice and place it on the Notice Board inviting any objection against the marriage within 30 days and when no objections are received the marriage shall be solemnized and couple shall be declared as Husband and Wife. If any body remember Mr. Rajiv Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi a notice was issued by Registrar and Mrs. Indira Gandhi was silent for the same, when asked by the journilists. Of course they have followed both procedures of marriages under Hindu Retuials and Special Marriage Act too. Better to approach Arya Samaj or any such institution or any trust who can solemnised the marriage and on next day you can go for registration of the same with the certificate and required other proofs of marriage, identifications, affidavit/declarations, etc. and get your marriage registered. Normally I do and follow this procedure, because as a woman advocate I know the couples are always in hurry to marry and their parents are against them - in some cases parents files compliants under Habius Corpus and pressurise either parents of bride or groom and harass them - but in most of the cases afterwards they comes to be happy compromise and acceptability of marriage and all become happy. As a lawyer I play my signficant role of protecting them from all illegal ways and means and guide them accordingly to law I have got registered such many marriages they are very happy. Hope this will help you. I repat in verbatim the report in respect of Habius Corpus sent by PI to the HC Gujarat as an example here wheren a Habius Corpus Petition was made by parents of the bride against Boy and his parents and others before Hon'ble Gujarat High Court, wherein I appeared through my Senior and the petition was upheld on getting Report from Police Authorities.
