Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Civil unions or domestic partnerships do not automatically convert to marriages. A civil union/domestic partnership couple will have to apply for and receive a marriage license and thereafter engage in a marriage ceremony in order to receive a marriage certificate.
Please let me know if you need anything further. Also, please take time to positively rate our conversation so I may receive credit for assisting. Thanks again!
