Civil Partnership (Scotland) Act 2020

Paragraph 6(3) Register of Dissolutions of Civil Partnership

82.Section 122 of the Civil Partnership Act 2004 (“the 2004 Act”) requires the Registrar General to maintain a register of decrees of dissolution of civil partnership known as the Register of Dissolutions of Civil Partnership. Paragraph 6(3) of schedule 2 requires the Registrar General to include decrees of declarator of nullity of civil partnerships in that register. The modification achieves consistency with the Register of Divorces, as provided for in section 28A of the Registration of Births, Deaths and Marriages (Scotland) Act 1965, which records both decrees of divorce and decrees of declarator of nullity of marriage.
