Other forms and paperwork you need to provide will vary depending on your situation and the requirements of your parish or diocese.

Before you contact your parish, you may want to look over its website for basic information and parish-specific policies about celebrating the sacrament of marriage.

When the parish at which you were baptized provides a copy of the baptism certificate, that certificate will indicate that you have not been married previously in the Catholic Church, and are therefore eligible to be married.

If one of you is not Catholic, proof of baptism will help to determine which version of the ought to be used (the rite follows a different order for marriage between a Catholic and someone who has not been baptized).

All eligible persons have a right to receive the sacrament of marriage, regardless of ability to pay a fee.

You should expect to provide some paperwork in the months leading up to the wedding.
