What type of decisions can I make on my own for my Child

 

Who makes the what type of decisions for a Child depends on:

Usually the parent who has the care of the Child that day, will be responsible for decisions about the day to day welfare of the Child.

 

When do you have to make decisions together with the other Parent

 

If Equal Shared Parental Responsibility Order applies, then this requires parents make joint decisions about major long-term issues for the child together. 


An Order for Equal Shared Parental Responsibility requires the parents to:
