Benefits to register your de facto relationship

29-November-2010 Family Law By Simone Green

The NSW Attorney General launched the NSW Relationships Register in 2010. This Register is managed by the NSW Registry of Births, Deaths & Marriages and allows unmarried couples in a committed, exclusive relationship to formally prove that they are in a committed or de facto relationship.

The Register is open for either unmarried heterosexual or same sex couples. Registrants will be provided with a document which helps to prove their relationship, avoiding the burden of constantly having to supply government agencies voluminous paperwork as evidence of their relationship.
