Can grandparents obtain parental responsibility?

Grandparents can obtain parental responsibility in one of 3 ways:

By either obtaining a Child Arrangements Order which will automatically grant them parental responsibility for a child whilst the order is in force.

By the child’s parents consenting to parental responsibility.

By applying to the court for a Parental Responsibility order.

Once Parental Responsibility is granted, they will be allowed to make important decisions regarding a child’s welfare, education, medical treatment, and other major matters.
