Registered relationships

The Relationships Register Act 2016 (SA), which came into operation on 1 August 2017, makes it possible for a couple (irrespective of their sex or gender identity) to register their relationship with the office of Births Deaths and Marriages in South Australia.

The Act sets out who may apply to register a relationship, what needs to be included with the application, when the registration may take effect, as well as the procedure for revoking the registration of a relationship.
