Petition Remove parental responsibility of convicted child sex offenders
The Government should prevent convicted child sex offenders from having any contact with their children, by making this an automatic licence condition for all such offenders.
Partners of convicted child sex offenders have difficulty legally protecting their children when the sex offender still maintains their parental responsibility. Signatures to change names and details on official documents for the children often require both parental signatures, which can be difficult and distressing to obtain if the parents are estranged and there are risk to the children if contact were to be made.
