  • Grant Fathers Automatic Parental Responsibility

    Hi Everyone,

    There's a petition going to lobby changes in legislation that would recognise fathers as automatic parents when their child is born. Currently a man only gains PR when he either marries the mother of the child, or signs the birth certificate - Which requires her consent.

    In cases where a man has a child to a woman with a grudge against him, all of his rights can be stripped away with ease by her refusal to cooperate in one minor way.

    Any signature or support would be greatly effect here. It has been acknowledged by the NI government and simply requires a notable signature base to be taken seriously, so please sign and spread it around.

    Also note that while this affects NI, changing the law here will without doubt lead to a change in wider UK law.
