I'd like to make a change to my marital status

Thank you. You must report this change to us within seven days of the change; please see the details here for how to do this. We will make this change free of charge.

At the appointment, please make sure you provide your police registration certificate (PRC) and your original marriage or civil partnership certificate. If your certificate is not in English, we do not need to see a translated version.

In the case of your marriage to a British citizen, you must also bring their original passport or British birth certificate.
