Civil partnership certificate

Civil partnership certificates are issued by the registry office.

Since 1 October 2017, no new civil partnerships have been established in Germany on the basis of the Act on the Introduction of the Right to Marriage for Persons of the Same Sex of 20 July 2017.

On the basis of an existing civil partnership, the registrar continues to issue a civil partnership certificate upon request. The application can be made orally, in writing by fax or online via the service portal.
