What's on City of Melbourne


Relationship Declaration Register

The City of Melbourne's Relationship Declaration Register means both mixed-sex and same-sex couples can formally declare their relationships.

To apply to register your relationship, you and your partner are required to read the guidelines, fill out an application form and visit the Town Hall to formally sign a certificate of declaration.

A certificate celebrating the commitment will be provided on the day of the registration.

Please note that the fee for new applications received from 1 November 2014 will be $250.

Please carefully read and consider the Relationship register questions and answers prior to making your application.
