Converting your civil partnership into marriage
From Wednesday 10 December 2014, couples in a civil partnership are able to convert their partnership registration to a marriage.
Couples wishing to complete a conversion will both be required to attend an appointment together at the register office.
There is no requirement to attend the office that registered your partnership or at the office for the district in which you live, this service can be provided at any register office and as such Hull Register Office welcomes enquiries from all couples.
When you attend the appointment both of you will be required to provide evidence of your name, address and date of birth. We will also require evidence of your civil partnership.
It is important that any documents supplied are from the list of acceptable documents below. If the documents supplied are not deemed acceptable we will not be able to complete the conversion. All documents provided must be originals as we cannot accept photocopies.
To establish name and date of birth, you must both provide a UK birth certificate and one other piece of evidence as listed below to establish your current name, if this has changed since birth -
- valid passport
- valid EEA identity card
- valid driving licence with photograph (full or provisional)
If you are a non British or EU citizen please contact us for advice on appropriate documents.
To establish your address, you must both provide one of the following documents -
- utility bill dated within the last three months
- bank or building society statement dated within one month of date presented
- council tax bill, dated within last year
- valid UK driving license
To establish your civil partnership, you must provide -
