Someone on here recently told me that it needs to be 6 months before the date of the marriage & that you'll need to bring along documents to show you've compelted the marriage prep course & notifiied the state of yoru intention to marry.

The pre nup can be done after the 6 months. You have to have baptismal and confirmation certs which have to be dated within 6 months of the wedding. You can even do the pre nup 2 weeks before. You [b:1b8l2rjj]cant[/b:1b8l2rjj] do it more than 6 months to the date. hth :wv edited to say CANT

No they HAVE to be dated within 6 months to the wedding. Think its something to do with to make sure you werent married before. You get them in the church you were baptised and confirmed in. Got my poor mam to get these for me, she had to go to 3 different churchs!! :o0

I don't know if there's a minimum amount of time before the wedding when you can do this but it can't be more than six months because the baptismal/confirmation certs can't be dated more than six months before the wedding (and you need these for the pre nup). I'm getting married in early October and our pre-marriage course isn't till mid May (my parish priest - I'm in England - wanted us to do a particular course and they had no availability until May) so we won't be doing the pre nup until after the course i.e. four and a half months before the wedding. Given that my parish in Ireland appear to be ignoring my requests for a letter of freedom, it's probably a good thing that I've a while to go yet!! You can notify the state any time as long as it's more than three months before the wedding - I'd do it sooner rather than later because they'll probably raise the ridiculous admin fee for no reason other than to earn some extra money for themselves!!! Grumble grumble... Sorry, but to tell me to bring my own photocopies and then charge me an admin fee...... How do they justify it???!!!

Dont worry, they would have had to send all documents somewhere! I was baptised in a hospital chapel thats so longer there either but they hopsital traced where it went!! Fun times!! Still didnt do our pre nup, must get our skates on!! :eek
