Parental Responsibility Agreement

Subject to eligibility, a parental responsibility agreement can be entered into by:

  • A birth mother and an unmarried biological father.
  • A step-parent and a child’s legal parent.
  • A child’s second female parent.

It is important to understand the legal issues, process and implications before entering into a parental responsibility agreement using the prescribed court form. This must be witnessed by a court officer and then sent to the Principal Registry of The Family Division in London and recorded on the central Parental Responsibility Agreement Register. Once an individual obtains parental responsibility for a child, it can only be removed by the English Family Court in limited situations.
