Domestic Partnership

Definition and Purpose

Applications are accepted at City Hall, 30 Church St., Room 100A, Monday - Friday between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.



Domestic Partnership: $75
Replacement copy of the certificate: $10
Termination of a Partnership: $75 (certain requirements must be met)
