Hello
Welcome to Just Answer
I am a Solicitor and will assist you.
If the conception by artificial insemination took place before the 06 April 2009 - you don't automatically have parental responsibility.
If you seek Parental Responsibilty now - yourself and your civil partner could agree a Parental Reponsibilty Order. If this can't be agreed then you can apply to court for a Parental Responsibilty Order.
Kind Regards
Caroline

Hi
Thank you for your question.
My name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you
Since you entered into a Civil Partnership after the child was born you DO in fact have Parental Responsibility for the child
