Register a Relationship in Victoria.
You can apply to register a domestic relationship in Victoria if you are a couple, both at least 18 years old and at least one can provide evidence of living in Victoria.
Both of you need to take part in registering the relationship:
- Partner 1 completes their part of the application.
- We email Partner 2.
- Partner 2 completes their part.
Registering your relationship for immigration purposes.
Currently the Immigration Department state the following:
Usually your de facto relationship must have existed for at least 12 months immediately before you apply for the visa.
Time spent dating or in an online relationship might not count as being in a de facto relationship.
The 12-month requirement will not apply if you have registered your relationship with an Australian authority such as a registry of births, deaths and marriages
The 12-month requirement will not apply if you can show us compelling and compassionate circumstances exist to grant the subclass 309 or 820 visa.
Thank you to those who have sent me a coffee, it is very much appreciated.
