Legal Responsibility

There are very few laws or regulations relating to name changes within the United Kingdom. However, in the case of child name changes, everyone with parental responsibility for a child must agree to the change taking place before it can happen.

There are a few exceptions to this rule whereby one party may lawfully change their child’s name without the consent of one or more people who also have parental responsibility but this involves applying to a family court for leave (permission) to change the child’s name. For more information on changing your child's name without the consent of one or more people who have parental responsibility, please read the section.

Parental responsibility is a legal term used to describe the rights and responsibilities which a parent has over their child. It is defined by the Children Act as having "All the rights, duties, powers, responsibility and authority which by law a parent of a child has in relation to the child and his property".
