This chapter considers the question of who has parental responsibility, or put another way, who the holders of parental responsibility are. It begins by examining the allocation of parental responsibility at the child's birth and subsequent to the child's birth. It considers over whom such responsibility exists. It concludes by discussing the duration of parental responsibility; the position where responsibility is shared between different holders; the delegation of responsibility; and the legal position of those caring for a child without having parental responsibility.
