Default [489] How do you prove a de facto marriage?

i just got my skill assesment result and need to start thinking about such things. I've been reading a lot about what kind of proofs do the Australians want, but nothing specifies WHEN and WHERE do I apply for my de facto marriage to be recognized? Do I need to do something about it before my visa application? Before Expression of Interest? Does it happen during any of these processes or is there a special body responsible for it.(like Australian computer society for skill assesment)
Why there is so little information about it...

Relationship can either be de facto or it can be marriage
It canít be a defacto marriage
Decide whether you are marked or defacto

Cheers

In some jurisdictions, e.g. all states/territories in Australia except WA you can register your de facto relationship, in other jurisdictions you can do the same under a different name and its variants: "common law marriage" / "common law relationship", and in some places you can't register your de facto relationship - only demonstrate it through a few ways.

How you prove that you are in a genuine and continuing relationship to DHA is the same whether you are married or in a de facto partnership, you need to show you have combined your affairs across the following areas: financial / social / household / nature of relationship (commitment)

Easy reading here: https://www.myaccessaustralia.com/partner-visa/

Edit:

In Australia there are circumstances where you can be legally married, and be considered to be in a de facto relationship with someone other than your husband/wife.

There is plenty of information online about how to prove your de facto relationship. If you don't want to do your research or application yourself you should just hire an agent.
