Hi

I have been asked if the children can be part of a study regarding the type of disability one has and as part of it she may receive some additional therapy (at no cost to me).

Ex does not see children, no longer contacts them in any way.

I sent him the details but no reply.

Do I need his consent for this or do I have the authority to consent alone?

When she has had any other treatments/therapies/doctors visits, it has only been me that gave consent but we were married then.

Thanks

GMS

My son was premature and part of the ''Oracle'' study and they only need parental consent from one parent. i signed all the paperwork. I think you will find it only needs one parental signature.

Usually ''a'' parent with PR is all thats needed to consent but its courteous to let the other parent know, which you have done :)

Thanks both - the idea of the free extra therapies for her was too good to pass up!
