Civil partnership registration

A civil partnership can take place in a registration office or at an approved place.

Each of you must complete and submit a civil partnership notice, along with the required documents and the appropriate fee to the registrar for the district where the ceremony is to take place.

Please note our registrars offices in Montrose, Arbroath and Forfar, operate by appointment only. 

For more information, and to download a civil partnership notice, visit the National Records of Scotland website. Civil partnership notice forms are also available from any of our registration offices.

After your civil partnership has been registered, the registrar will give you a certificate of the entry in the register. 

Additional extracts can be obtained at the time of registration, or within a month, for £10 each. After one month the cost will be £15 for the first extract then £10 per subsequent extract.
