Civil status certificate
You can use a civil status certificate to prove your marital status. This certificate shows whether you are married, in a registered partnership, unmarried, divorced or widowed.
The following information is included in the certificate when you order a standard certificate via the self-service. A standard certificate means that the certificate always contains the same information and the selected optional information:
- Date of birth
- Marital status
- Municipality of residence
If you need other information, order the certificate by email, phone or a form.
Please first check with the foreign authority if you need a certificate pursuant to Finnish legislation to get married abroad. Further information on the certificate: Examination of impediments to marriage.
How to order certificates
You can order a civil status certificate of yourself. Certificates ordered and delivered through the self-service are cheaper, and you receive certificates quickly. Prices can be found at the bottom of the page.
