Relationships Register provides legal recognition for couples


South Australian lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ) couples who married overseas can secure legal recognition on the new relationships register.

The register also allows unmarried couples to register their relationships and receive a certificate of registration, no matter their sex or gender identity.

Registering relationships will make it easier for couples to seek access to entitlements and assert their rights, including in situations of a medical nature.
