The couple - who can register a Civil Partnership?

Any two persons, regardless of where they live, may register a civil partnership in Scotland provided that:

  • both persons are at least 16 years of age on the day they wish to register their civil partnership,
  • they are of the same sex,
  • they are not related to one another in a way which would prevent their registering their civil partnership,
  • each is unmarried or not already registered as a civil partner,
  • they are capable of understanding the nature of what it is to register a civil partnership and of consenting to do so.

The Celebrant - who can perform our civil partnership ceremony?

A civil partnership may be registered by a district registrar or an assistant registrar or a religious or belief celebrant who has been authorised by the Registrar General for that purpose or whose religious or belief body has been prescribed in regulations under the Civil Partnership Act 2004.
