We present a theory on stratified nonlinear magneto-photonic crystals, with arbitrary spatial distribution of the refractive index and magneto-optical coefficients. The coupled mode theory is formulated for plane waves inside the crystal, and a perturbation series of integral solutions for the spectral response of the crystal is presented. Material issues and configurations are discussed, and the described theory is applied to the calculation of transmission spectra of binary magneto-photonic crystals.
