Who has Parental Responsibility?


A child’s mother automatically has Parental Responsibility and does not lose it if she separates from the child’s father, whether or not they were married.

Fathers of children who are not or have not been married to the child’s mother will have Parental Responsibility if they are named on the Birth Certificate of the child.
