Civil Partnership: Step by Step


Follow our step-by-step guide to forming a civil partnership in Cambridgeshire.  For more general information about civil partnerships please take a look at information on GOV.UK here

1. Book your Formation

You can only book online if you intend to hold your formation from Thursday, November 4, 2021

If you intend to have your formation in an Approved Venue you must have discussed dates and times with them before booking our services

2. Book Your Notices of Civil Partnership

Notice of Civil Partnership is a legal requirement where you book an appointment to see a registrar with documents to prove your identity. This must be done at least 1 month before your formation but can be up to 12 months ahead.  We would recommend that you give notice within 4 months of your formation
