A Civil partnership now includes the formerly named registered relationship..
A civil partnership is a legally recognised committed relationship, under the Civil Partnerships Act 2011, that may be entered into by two eligible adults, regardless of their sex.
A civil partnership is NOT a marriage.
Marriage is governed by the Marriage Act 1961 (Cth).
A Queensland civil partnership may not necessarily be recognised in other Australian jurisdictions.
A civil partnership declaration ceremony is part of registering your relationship as a civil partnership.
You must provide notice of your intention to your choice of civil partnership notary (and BDM) at least 10 days before the event.
A declaration ceremony cannot be performed earlier than 10 days or later than 12 months after you lodge the notice of intention
