On April 2, 2014, the City Council of the City of Punta Gorda adopted Ordinance 1783-14 establishing a Domestic Partnership Registry.

What is a Domestic Partnership?

A Domestic Partnership refers to two individuals who maintain important personal, emotional, and economic relationships. Individuals in these partnerships are unmarried and may share committed family relationships, but may also be denied certain rights if their partnership is not recognized.

How to Register…

Application for the Domestic Partnership Registry can be made through the Office of the City Clerk, 326 West Marion Avenue, Punta Gorda, Florida.

Domestic Partnership Registrations are processed:

Monday through Friday
8:00am– 4:30pm

The cost of registration is $30 to be paid in cash or check made payable to the City of Punta Gorda.

Upon registering and recording of the Affidavit, partners will receive registration cards which can be easily stored in wallets for ease of access and use.

Registration Forms

Affidavit forms are available in the City Clerk’s Office but can also be obtained by clicking on the links below. Please note paperwork completed in advance must not be signed until both partners appear in the City Clerk’s Office for witnessing and notarization. Be sure to bring picture identification (such as a driver’s license) with you.
