In order to give a notice, both of you must have lived in a registration district in England or Wales for at least seven clear days immediately before giving notice. Each of you will give your own notice, but you can attend together if you live in the same registration district although you will still give your notices individually. If you live in different registration districts, you will need to give notice separately in your own area.
To avoid any inconvenience for couples, most register offices work by appointment. Therefore you are strongly advised to telephone the register office for the district where you live before going there. Staff is then able to check your details carefully and advise you properly about which documents you will need to produce when giving your notice of intention.
To arrange an appointment to give notice in the Dudley borough (Dudley borough residents only) please call
Dudley register office on 01384 815373. Our phone lines are quieter in the afternoons. If you have difficulty contacting Dudley Citizenship & Registration Services please email firstname.lastname@example.org giving us a daytime phone number and we will call you.
Important - The notice fee (£35 for each notice) will be taken when the appointment is booked by credit or debit card. For your convenience, we offer some out of hours appointments on Saturdays and Thursday evenings. There is an additional charge of £20 for an out of hours appointment.
