Registration of Religious Marriages

Some religious marriage ceremonies conducted here in the UK may not be recognised as legal by the UK state. To ensure recognition of your religious marriage, it is essential that it is registered. 

Cartridges Law supports the campaigning work of Register Our Marriage.

Why is it important to register your religious marriage?

Registration of your religious marriage means that you have access to the full range of legal rights on marriage and divorce.
