Re-registration of children

The following information applies to children born in England or Wales. For children born elsewhere you should seek advice from the authorities in that country.

A child whose natural parents have married or formed a civil partnership since they were born, must have their birth re-registered. 

Re-registration is free, although a statutory fee will be charged for any certificates issued. 

To book a re-registration appointment at an East Sussex Register Office contact us on 0345 60 80 198.

Prior to the appointment form LA1 must be completed by both parents.

Re-registration following the marriage or civil partnership of two female parents contact the General Register Office on 0300 123 1837.
