Certified copy of "Declaration of Domestic Partnership" - $6.00
If my partner and I registered with the City of West Palm Beach Domestic Partnership Registry, do we need to register again with Palm Beach County?
The Palm Beach County Ordinance 2006-02, Section 9, calls for reciprocity.
If you were registered or legally established a partnership in another jurisdiction, County entities will recognize your partnership and extend the same rights to you as if you had registered in Palm Beach County.
You will not receive a Palm Beach County registration certificate or number unless you choose to register in the Palm Beach County registry.
However, you will be entitled to the same rights.
If you are registered with the City of West Palm Beach, other entities in Palm Beach County (such as a hospital located in the County but outside of the City limits) should extend to you the same benefits as if you were registered with the County. Refer to City of West Palm Beach "Domestic Partnership Registry".
Is Domestic Partnership Registration confidential?
No. When an application for Domestic Partnership Registration is recorded by the Recording Department, it becomes public record and can be viewed by anyone, and any member of the public can purchase a copy of any public record.
What is a Domestic Partnership?
Establish and maintain a significant personal, emotional and economic relationship with another individual.
Form domestic partnerships and live in a committed relationship.
