    If you are a US citizen, you do not need to do anything except pay your income taxes annually on all income worldwide from every source, and report all foreign bank & other financial accounts. The IRS is getting very, very nasty with Americans who move overseas, and the reporting obligations are becoming extremely onerous. Be sure to file your annual income tax returns on time (June 15th), pay all income taxes due, and file all those reports on overseas bank/financial accounts. Keep up-to-date on requirements, and remember the vast majority of US-based tax preparers & accountants are totally ignorant on these matters. You will have to do it all yourself.

    For Australia, of course, you need to obtain proper immigration visa based on your marriage to an Australian citizen.

    Nahhhh... I am a US citizen living in MX. Just file your taxes. As long as you show you are paying tax in your new country you do not need to file non US income in the US. You just need to show it.

    If you're marrying an Australian they can sponsor you (spouse visa). You can't just move to Australia.

    You do not need to notify anyone. As long as you continue to file those US taxes each year, you will be fine.
