Employers and insurance companies may have their own policies for defining a common law partner for the purpose of deciding who qualifies for company or medical benefits.

The publication " And they lived happily ever after: rights and responsibilities of common law partners" has a table at the back that gives the amount of time a couple must live together to qualify as common law partners under various laws.
