Notice of Marriage and Civil Partnership
Giving Notice is the process of letting a register office know that you wish to get married or form a civil partnership. Notice is given at the register office in the borough(s) where each partner has lived for at least 9 days.
Haringey Notice appointments take place at: Haringey Register Office, George Meehan House, 294 High Road, Wood Green, London N22 8JZ.
- We cannot take your Notice in Haringey if you do not live in Haringey
If you cannot get an appointment near where you live: we can only take your notice if you move to Haringey for at least 9 days and provide evidence confirming residency, for example by completing this declaration form: Legal Statement declaring a person lives at your address (PDF, 6KB).
You must give Notice in person and each partner will be interviewed on their own. In Haringey, these interviews take place at George Meehan House in Wood Green.
You will need to know where but not when you are having a marriage or civil partnership ceremony when you give Notice. The venue given cannot then be changed.
Each partner is asked questions about themselves and their partner including their name, age, address and what they do for a living. Each partner must provide documents to prove their identity, address and other related information. Find out which documents you need to bring.
Please arrange your own interpreter if you need one, you will be unable to interpret for your partner
Sometimes additional payments need to be taken at your appointment, these additional fees are normally for overseas divorce clearance, ceremony bookings and immigration referrals.
You can make any additional payments using our secure payment e-form.
Some European Union (EU) and European Economic Area (EEA) nationals and their partners now need to give notice at the same time. Couples subject to immigration (including EU/EEA nationals without settled/pre-settled status) must give notice at the same time. At least one partner must live in the area where notice is given.
If both partners fall into the following categories, each can give Notice separately.
- British nationals
- Irish nationals
- EU/EEA nationals or their partners with evidence of EU settled status/pre-settled status using a valid 'share code' obtained from GOV.UK (external link)
- EU/EEA nationals or their partners with a Certificate of Application (CoA) to prove that they applied for EU settled status/pre-settled status on or before 30 June 2021
