Parents: All paretns have the powers and responsibilities in relation to the children that can only be changed by court order. These duties, powers and responsibilities are referred to as parental responsibility. They are not effected by the relationship between the parents, such as whether or not they have lived together or married. A court order may take away the authority of a parent to do something, or give it to another person (see National Law sections 170(6) and 171).   Parental Responsibility: A person other than a parent can be allocated parental responsibility for a child under a decision or order of a court. Guardians: A guardian of a child also has parental responsibility. A legal guardian is given parental responsibility by a court order. This includes situations where a child does not live with his or her parents and there are no court orders. In these cases, the guardian is the person the child lives with who has day-to-day care and control of the child.
