star this property answer text <p>Section 9 of the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act 2013 provides that civil partners may convert their civil partnership into marriage under regulations to be made by the Secretary of State, and that the resulting marriage will be treated as having subsisted since the date the civil partnership was formed. Civil partnerships and marriage are separate legal institutions so a process is required for conversion. We are working hard to ensure that couples wanting to convert their civil partnerships into marriages are able to do so as soon as possible. We aim to do this before the end of 2014.</p><p>These aspects of implementing the Act take longer because they involve developing and implementing completely new procedures and processes. This contrasts with the work to make new marriages for same-sex couples possible, where we were able to build on existing processes so implementation was more straightforward.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The proposed fees for converting a civil partnership to marriage have been calculated on a full cost recovery basis. Where comparable processes exist for marriage and civil partnership, for example, for housebound and detained persons, these have been mirrored in the calculations for the conversion fees. Subject to Parliamentary approval of the necessary legislation, the fee to convert a civil partnership to a marriage will be:</p><p> </p><p>· £45 - standard procedure at a register office</p><p>· £99 - at the residence of a housebound person</p><p>· £117 - at the place of detention of a detained person</p><p>· £15 – special procedure where a person is seriously ill and not expected to recover.</p><p> </p><p>There will be separate fees for conversions conducted in consulates overseas which have yet to be confirmed.</p><p> </p><p>The Government recognises that some couples may not have entered into their civil partnership if marriage had been available to same sex couples at that time. Therefore the Home Secretary has agreed to waive the fee for one year from 10 December 2014 for any couple who formed their civil partnership prior to 29 March 2014.</p>
