Civil Partnerships

Civil Partnerships can be carried out by the Registrars based at the Kirkwall and Stromness Registration Offices.

This can either be by signing the Civil Partnership Schedule in the Registration Office along with two witnesses or with a ceremony at a venue of your choice.

Civil Partnership Forms (CP10) must be completed and submitted a minimum of 29 days prior to the date of the partnership and not more than three months before the proposed date.

Documents to be Submitted
