Usual Occupation - Notice of Intended Marriage and Marriage Certificate

by Jennifer Cram   12 March 2019  |
Notice of Intended MarriageThe Notice of Intended Marriage asks for your Usual Occupation.

What that means is  What is your job? So write in your actual job, not the industry or function. Most often this will be your job title,

so, Administrative Assistant rather than Administration, Salesperson rather than Sales.  If you’re retired, you need to say retired what, eg Retired Public Servant. If you’re a stay-at-home parent, it is Home Duties.

It is quite common for people to change jobs between lodging the Notice of Intended Marriage and getting married. It is fine to have different occupations on these two documents because each is a snapshot in time.
