The majoirty of civil partnerships are conducted under the authority of the Registrar General's 3 months Licence.

A civil partnership under this authority may be registered by a Registrar, the Registrar General or anybody, previously approved by the Registrar General, in the presence of the Registrar General.

What is the process?

There is a fee for this.

Once the Form 1CP is submitted to the office of the Registrar General it will be displayed for a period of 21 days and thereafter, if there have been no caveats entered or no one who has authority has forbidden it, the Registrar General shall issue a Licence.  The Licence is valid for 3 months from the date the Notice is entered into the Civil Partnership Notice Book (which will be the date it is submitted to the office).
