Civil Partnerships for opposite sex couples

Civil partnerships for opposite sex couples


We are now taking bookings for civil partnerships for opposite sex couples.

The Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration Etc.) Act, which received Royal Assent on 26 March 2019, contains provisions for regulations to be made to extend eligibility for forming a civil partnership to opposite sex couples. 

If you wish to have an opposite sex civil partnership ceremony at Sutton Register Office in the new year please make your booking with us as soon as possible by calling 020 8770 6790.  (Please note, your legal notice of intention is to be given for a period of 29 days after which the formation can then take place. In certain cases, depending on immigration status, this may be extended to 71 days and your notice is given at a designated office for more information please click here).

Any bookings will be subject to the terms and conditions of our booking policy.

A civil partnership does not require a ceremony therefore you can choose to sign the schedule in front of 2 qualified witnesses by booking a statutory ceremony appointment (subject to availability). If you wish to combine the signing with a full ceremony then of course you have that option too and will need to book a venue and registrars ahead of booking an appointment to give your legal notice.
