If you are not legally married, but are living together as partners, you are considered to be in a common law relationship. There is no specific number of years that you have to live together in order to be considered common law. Custody/access and child support are issues that effect common law partners, just as they do married couples. If you are the father or mother of a child or children, you have the same rights to custody and/or access as a married couple does, and you also have a child support obligation to your children depending on your income.
