Can a registration be challenged?

A court may declare the registration of a relationship void if:

  • when the relationship was registered, registration under the Act was prohibited, see Who may apply to register a relationship? above
  • the agreement of either partner to the registration was obtained by fraud, duress or other improper means
  • when the relationship was registered, either partner was mentally incapable of understanding the nature and effect of registration

If a registration is void, the Registrar must note this in the Register.

See section 14 of the Relationships Register Act 2016 (SA).
