Converting a Civil Partnership into a Marriage

If you have been through a legal Civil Partnership ceremony in England or Wales you can now convert this into a marriage.

The standard administrative procedure to convert your Civil Partnership into a marriage can be completed at any Register Office in England and Wales. It does not have to be in the same district where you originally formed your Civil Partnership.

You will be required to make an appointment for the conversion and it will be necessary for you to bring identification along with proof of your address and your Civil Partnership certificate. We will advise you exactly what documents are required when you make the appointment.

Both partners must be present at the conversion but no witnesses are required.

There is a statutory fee of £45 for the conversion along with a fee of £4.00 for the marriage certificate.

If you wish to have a non-statutory ceremony to celebrate the conversion of your Civil Partnership or if you wish to sign the conversion declaration at an approved venue or at a religious building that is approved for same-sex marriages, additional fees and processes will apply.

Please contact us on 01792 636188 for more information or to make an appointment.
