Thank you for coming to my web page. I have retired as a Marriage Celebrant.
In Queensland, a Registered Relationship is a new way of formally recognising a committed relationship between a couple.
On November 30 2011, the Queensland Parliament passed the Civil Partnership Act 2011 which provided for a couple, regardless of their sex to have their relationship legally recognised. The new law came into effect on 23 February 2012.
On June 2012 the Queensland Parliament passed the Civil Partnerships and Other Legislation Amendment Bill 2012. The new legislation came into effect on June 27 2012 and amended the Civil Partnerships Act 2011 including renaming it the Relationships Act 2012.
The Relationships Act 2011 provides for a couple, regardless of their sex, to have their relationship legally recognised in Queensland.
As the removal of the Civil Partnership Notary registeration scheme is included in these legislative changes, the appointment of Civil Partnership Notary will not be progressed.
The relationship is legally recognised in Queensland & the Commonwealth once it is registered at the Registry of Births, Deaths & Marriages.
Couples wanting to have their relationship registered should consult www.justice.qld.gov.au/justice-services/births-deaths-and-marriages/civil-partnerships
