Converting civil partners will receive backdated marriage certificates

Marriage certificate to be dated as at registration of civil partnership

The government has confirmed that any couples who have their civil partnership converted to same-sex marriages will have the marriage certificates backdated to the date of registration of the civil partnership.

This means that couples will not receive a conversion certificate as previously suggested.

Couples in England and Wales will be able to convert their civil partnerships to marriages from 10th December 2014.
