Parental responsibility

The House of Commons Library has published a briefing note looking at parental responsibility as a legal concept as set out in the Children Act 1989 as amended. The briefing note, which applies to England and Wales, covers: the exercise of parental responsibility; dwindling parental responsibility as a child gets older; acquiring parental responsibility; and parental responsibility agreements and orders.
