JOY Law: Married overseas? What it means now Australia has marriage equality


JOY Law for LGBTI community and rainbow families

Kris and Jack join Rach, Jacq and Dene to talk about the implications of Australian marriage equality for LGBTI people who have married overseas.

Australian marriage equality

We chat about:

  • recognition of overseas marriages
  • do you need to get re-married on Australian soil?
  • do you need to register your overseas marriage with the Australian government to have it recognised?
  • if the relationship has ended, do you now need to apply for divorce in Australia?
  • what are the implications for wills and enduring power of attorney for partners who are now legally recognised as your spouse. Does this change if you have separated?
