Voluntary Conversion of Civil Union to Marriage

A Voluntary Conversion of Civil Union to Marriage is the process through which a civil union can become legally recognized as a marriage. Two partners for a civil union can file for a marriage license without paying the filing fee, so long as the the following conditions are met:  


  • the civil union has NOT been dissolved, nor is there a pending dissolution of civil union case; and 

  • the marriage would NOT be legally prohibited
