Policy Status : Suggested
That the Govt make it more clear, systemised & documented, that De Facto Relationships be declared in the same way as a marriage is declared

De Facto Relationships should be declared in the same way as a marriage is declared, that is, if someone in the end, wants to claim the benefits of De Facto/Marriage dissolution, at the time of deciding to co-habit, it must be formally declared, as in a marriage situation. If it lasts the two years, then the accumulated assets may be agreed upon. If the De Facto relationship is not formally declared, so that the understanding of both parties, is clear, and the consequences clear, then the consequences which apply to a formal marriage agreement cannot apply.

Why: At a De Facto level, many are not thinking about the consequences of “Beyond two years” and if it has not been formally considered, one party, or the other has full legal right to take advantage of that situation. Legal proceedings are costly, and often, one party will capitulate, being rather glad to be rid of the other party, whether fair or not.

A system can be developed, which is simple for both parties to complete on line perhaps, that formalises the union, with relevant details of both parties, simple, complete info that will assist should things break down
