Registering birth, death, marriage and divorce
Registering a birth
You need to register the birth of a child at the municipality within 3 days. You can either do this online or make an appointment.
Registering a death
The municipality also needs to be informed when someone in Groningen passed away. This is very often done by the mortician, but you can also do this yourself as a relative.
Marriage or registered partnership
If you want to get married or get a registered partnership in Groningen, you need to inform the municipality.
Registering a divorce
If you are getting a divorce, you need to report this within 6 months to the municipality where your marriage was registered.
