Marrying in or after March 2015?
These legal changes will affect you then!
The notice period legally required
ahead of a marriage or civil partnership in the UK will be doubled
from next spring.
BRIDAL BASICS: BANNS AND GIVING NOTICE
As it stands, all couples in the
UK are required to give notice at their local register office or
church15 days ahead of their intended wedding day. Come spring 2015
that notice period will be 28 days.
The move comes as part of the
Immigration Bill announced recently as a measure to crack down on
sham marriages. The notice period may well be extended further, to
70 days, if further investigation is necessary.
MARRYING ABROAD? YOUR LEGAL HOMEWORK DONE!
Couples who wish to marry in the
Anglican Church - where one party is a non-EEA national - will now
need to give notice at the register office before making
arrangements with their church, too.
