How to order:
Ensure the document you have is the original civil partnership certificate issued by the General Register Office (GRO) or local Registry Offices. (Photocopies cannot be used!)
Original or official GRO copies of civil partnership certificates do not require solicitor or notary certification.
Ensure that your civil partnership is valid (properly registered) or hasn’t been revoked. If the partnership is in the process of being dissolved, an apostille cannot be obtained.
Contact our office via phone or mail.
When emailing us, please provide the following information:
- How do you indent to deliver your original certificate
- In which country will your documents be used?
- Does your civil partnership certificate need translation?
- How soon do you need the apostille?
Once you have answered the questions above, our team will assess your request and give you a personalised and detailed quotation.
If attending our office in person, we will email all the details with your order.
If you accept our quotation, we will send an invoice to be paid and commence legalising your document with an apostille certificate.
Regardless of what return delivery method is chosen (in person, self-addressed envelope, DHL, etc.), we will inform you immediately as soon as the documents are ready to be collected or they are on their way back to you.
We will also email you a scanned copy of the completed document.
If you are not collecting your apostilled certificate from our London office – we will provide you with the DHL tracking number as soon as your forms have been given to the courier.
Note that we return documents with DHL (only). DHL return deliveries – both national and international require the following details:
- A full name
- Full return address
- Contact phone number
