Legislation makes civil partnership and marriage data public

Family Law | 19 Oct 2016 0

Two new pieces of legislation will make it lawful for the government to release information on marriages and civil partnerships.

Both the Civil Partnerships Records Regulations 2016 and the Births, Deaths, Marriages and Civil Partnerships Records Regulations 2016 come into force on November 7. They permit information contained on the Registrar General’s registers of civil partnerships and of births, death and marriages to be released to people who apply via the government website

If applying for details of a civil partnership, applicants will need to supply the personal addresses of both parties if the union has been in existence for less than 50 years.

In each case the requested details will be released as a pdf. Variable fees will be charged.
