Bill - Statutes Amendment (Registered Relationships)
Bill Number - 186 A
Introduced in the House of Assembly
Bill TitleStatutes Amendment (Registered Relationships)Bill Number186 186A
Introduced in theHouse of Assemblyon16/02/2017
Precis

This Act is consequential to the Relationships Register  Act 2016, which implements the recommendations set out in the South Australian Law Reform Institute equal recognition of relationships report as they relate to the establishment of a relationships register, amendment of access and eligibility provisions and the amendment of the Wills Act 1936.

On the commencement of the Relationships Register  Act 2016, unmarried couples, both heterosexual and non-heterosexual, will be able to register their relationships. It is intended that, once a relationship is registered, the same benefits as are currently afforded to married South Australians are extended to persons who are in registered relationships.

In order for the intentions of this Act to be fully realised, the South Australian statute book has been reviewed to locate all instances where a marriage or domestic partnership is referred to, and, where appropriate, this Act will amend those references to include a reference to a registered relationship.
