Domestic Partners will need to come to the County Clerk’s office to apply for an Oregon Declaration of Domestic Partnership for same sex partners only. Print the 8.5 x 14 form from the State website at: http://public.health.oregon.gov/birthdeathcertificates/registervitalrecords/pages/dp.aspx
After printing, check to be sure the Domestic Partnership form has a grey line running down the entire left side. It MUST be printed as 8.5 x 14 legal size. Use the State website instructions carefully to ensure you have printed legal size. Page "Set up" will need to be selected to print 8.5 x 14. Complete the form with notarized signatures and then register with the County Clerk’s Office.
Registration hours are 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. closed 11:15 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Monday - Friday
Both partners will need to appear in person at the County Clerk’s office if the Oregon State website form is not used. We do provide notary service in our office for a fee of $10.00 per signature. Please allow additional time if requesting a notary service.
If both partners cannot come into our office, one can stop by and pick up the form, take it with you, complete the form and have both signatures notarized. One of you may bring it back and finish the process.
The cost of a Domestic Partnership is $50.00 cash or with a debit/credit card (Visa, Master card, American Express or Discover) when the registration is filed. A service fee will be charged by the credit card provider.
You will receive one free regular copy of the Declaration of Domestic Partnership form at that time. Additional regular copies are $4.00 each. Certified copies are $7.75 for the first copy and $4.00 for each additional.
Please allow 30 minutes to complete the registration process.
