This is a new site that we are testing!
We are redesigning and improving the Cumbria County Council website which is why these new pages are different.
Evidence you need to bring to your appointment to prove your name, date of birth, nationality and address.
If you do not bring the required documentation, or do not meet the residency or other requirements, then the notice appointment will not be able to go ahead. You will need to book another appointment and pay the fee again. All documents provided must be originals.
When giving notice, you will need to pay a fee.
To prove your address, please bring one of the following:
If you are a British or Irish citizen, please bring your current valid passport.
If you do not have a British or Irish passport, please bring your full birth certificate together with one of the following original documents:
If you were born in the United Kingdom after 1 January 1983 and do not have a British or Irish passport, you also need to bring evidence of either one of your parents British citizenship or settled status in the UK at the time of your birth (their full birth certificate or passport).
If your parents were married at that time and your mother was not British then we also need to see their marriage certificate. If your parents were not married to each other at the time of your birth, your nationality will be that of your mother, so you must bring her documents.
If you have EUSS settled status, pre settled status or have a pending application to the EUSS, please bring a current and valid passport. If either of you are not a British or Irish citizen, please also bring evidence of your settled status, pre-settled status or a pending application to the EUSS.
We will require proof of your status before we can undertake your appointment. Find out how to get proof of your status on GOV.UK.
You will be asked to confirm which document you used in your application and then to confirm the details of the document and your date of birth. After completing the GOV.UK process you will be emailed the share code.
Once you have received the share code please forward it to firstname.lastname@example.org at least 2 days before your appointment. The share code is only valid for 30 days.
If any documents are not in English, you will need to get a full written English translation.
In addition to the documents listed above, you will need to bring:
Your marriage schedule will be issued a minimum of 28 days after giving your notice, or if you are subject to immigration control between 28 and 70 days subject to the Home Office.
