Poll: Domestic Partnership bill

Legislators are set to debate the Domestic Partnership Bill, which seeks to provide a legal framework for same-sex couples to enter into a formal union.

The bill, which has been open for public comment and consultation for a 30-day period, also seeks to address the long-standing issue of common law relationships in the Cayman Islands.

It sets out the process for entering into domestic partnerships, its registration and creates offences for breaches under the law.
