Adults who are in a relationship as a couple, regardless of their gender, may apply for registration of their relationship.  Adults in both heterosexual and same-sex relationships are eligible to register, however there are some exceptions.  For example, you cannot register if you are under the age of 18, or you are married or you are in another registered relationship.

It is not a requirement that you live together in order to be eligible to register your relationship.

We can assist you with registration of your relationship or if you have an enquiry about your rights to a civil union or marriage, email Claire Naidu & Co at or call us on 0410 557 276.
