Parental responsibility

For background, see the Parental responsibility subtopic in the Family module.

The section ‘Acquisition by others’ explains that parental responsibility may be acquired by certain other categories of people specified in the Children Act 1989 including a person:

  1. who is appointed as a guardian

  2. who is named in a child arrangements order (CAO) as a person with whom the child is to live—they have parental responsibility while the order remains in force so far as providing for the child to live with that person

  3. who is named in a CAO as a person with whom the child is to spend time or otherwise have contact but they are not named as the person with whom the child is to live—in those circumstances the court may provide in the order for the person to have parental responsibility for the child while the provisions in the order continue
